River Valley Counties 

The grasshopper danger is in a 
critical stage, T. L. Aamodt, assist-

cause of hot, dry weather in west- 
ern and northwestern Minnesota

western and northwestern Minne- 

Aamodt urged farmers to strike 
quickly with poison bait in an ef- 
fort to head off the crop destruc- 
. tion. "Hoppers have hatched at a 
- l xapid rate and are moving into 
edges of fields, he said.

worm in its early stages, the only 
tune the Insect can be controlled.

Fair sized crowds attended the 
sessions of the Setesdalslag held 
here during the week end. The af- 
ternoon meetings were more sparce- 
ly attended but the ev en i n g sesj 
sions drew good crowds. The "fest- 
messe" Sunday was marred some- 
what by the rain in the morning, 
causing some of those who drove 
in every day not to be present for' 
the services. 

Nils Hjelmtveit, the Norse com- 
missioner of education and 'Prof. 
Richard. Beck were unable to be 
present at the sessions, other mat- 
ters in terf erring.. However, the rest 
of the persons on the program ap* 1 
peered in turn .to make' i the con- 
vention a worthwhile event. Bj: 
Bjornaraa wasothe presiding offi- 
cer of the "lag." 

The Thief River Falls- Municipal 
band rendered an hour's concert at 
the Friday "evening session. A group 
of violin players participated in 
the program also, among these be- 
ing Bernt Sorbo of Grand Forks, 
Sam Sorenson of Minot, N. b., 
Bjom Tveitbakk of Clearbrook and 
Gunnar Odden of HazelNRun. 

Vocal selections were rendered by 
Miss Annie Knutson of Goodridge,

sioner of agriculture, Mr. Sorbo,

performance of tne Norwegian Na- 
tional dance Saturday evening 
which, together, with other, num- 
bers as violin music, vocal solos and 
talks made up the St. Hans Fes-

Engineers Form Trailer 

Village Near City; 37 

Constitute Crew 

For the past week or more a 
large group of employees of the U. 
S. Department of Commerce has 
been in this vicinity making what 
is called a geodetic survey of a 
strip of land 25 miles or more in 
width, stretching from Bagley 
northwest to the eastern part of 
Pennington county and thence 
northward to the Canadian border. 

The entire group of 37 men and, 
their families are located in trail- 
ers at the trailer camp' in the 
southwestern part of our city and 
the group makes vertuaUy a village 
of Its own. 

Farmers as well as others in this 
territory have been wondering 
about \the activities of this group 
of men and the several towers erec- 
ted here and there. At night a crew 
of men is at work signalling by 
lights from one tower to other 
crews at other towers from three 
to seven, miles apart. They com- 
municate by ".means of 'the- lights 
and when the -work at each tower 
is completed the exact latitude and 
longitude ol that spot is recorded 
by sinking a marker several -feet in 
the ground at that spot. 

A geodetic survey, ut il iz in g an en- 
gineering 'method known as trian- 
gulatlon, has been going on for 
over a decade, "and this survey is 
constantly, checked for accuracy.

fined shop, Mr. Christofferson said.

Tomorrow (Friday) we observe the 165th Anni- 
versary of American independence. We the people 
of this country have enjoyed democracy to its cir- 
cumscribed form for over. 150 years. 

That is a longer time than the length of the 
life anyone of us has lived. To some that may 
appear an extended time but for a country or na- 
tion it is not such a long time. We are compa**- 
tWely a young nation. 

United States was one of the first democracies. 
Considering this, it must be stated that the kind 
of government we know has not existed for a great 
length of time. 

With world conditions prevailing as they are to- 
<3ay, we are quite uncertain as to how much longer 
we can continue to enjoy a democratic form of gov- 
ernment. With the rest of the nations of the world 
turning to dictatorship the question arises: can we 
continue to endure democracy confronted "With fas- 
*dsm, nazi-lsm, etc.? 

We do not like to hurl a frightful idea into 
the minds of our readers at this time of celebration, 
fcut we believe these are rather strenuous days and 
-that sooner or later our democracy may be only a 
memory. Hitlerism may not seem to be a threat 
to some of us but to us it is distinctly so at this 

could be -freed now, it is apparent, with little effort. 
Make a battle on the Western Front now, John 
Bull, or you will be vanquished to short order after 
Russia is conquered! This Is one time when you

The real purpose of the flight of Rudolph Hess 
Irom Germany to Scotland a month ago has now 
been brought to light. The guess some made that 
he was sent to seek peace terms with the English 
proved to be true. Instead of escaping, as he said, 
he rather left under Hitlers protection and his 
place of departure was not from Germany but from 
Norway. - 

The disclosure reports that Hess came to the 

, British Isles with the offer to arrange lor a peace 

■settlement between the Nazi and England whereby: 

(1) Britain and Germany would enter a coalition 
as the chief partners in a new Axis; (2) Italy would 
0>e placated with some minor possessions of France, 
■which would be stripped of its empire; (3) Germany 
would retain a free hand on the whole of the con- 
tinent, with Britain helping to establish that free 
hand by joining Germany in conquering Russia. 

•It is reported that Churchill didn't agree with 
the Hess message. Russia and United States were 
told of the plot so the Soviet began to muster their 
forces against the impending attack. That was why 
Hitler's forces didn't advance as rapidly during the 
first week of the Russian drive as expected. If the 
failure of the plot gave Stalin's forces enough time 
to stand off defeat Is as yet uncertain. 

For England to cast its lot with Hitler insuch 
an intrigue would be fatal to the British. Hitler 
has betrayed Russia. And after he. has conquered 
the Soviet what would hinder him from betraying 
the English likewise? 

. The Nazi leaders took chances in disclosing thelr 
planned treachery to the English; but then it was 
■well known to Hitler that England would not be 
averse to a plan to annihilate the Russian govern- 
ment, a disclosure made by U. S. Ambassador Dodds 
in Berlin in 1939 through his diary published last 

Whether England did actually turn down the 

plot cannot be vouchsafed yet. The British forces 

• should now strike at Hitler in no uncertain manner 

to bring about his downfall. If England does not do 

this, a Nazi invasion of England will be certain. 

The British have offered their aid to Russia, 
but say there is little they can do. But is such the 
fact with Nazi soldiers withdrawn -in great num- 
bers from Norway and the French coast? - Norway 


The 96,500 troubled spirits of the American fa- 
thers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and friends whose 
lives were suddenly and horribly snuffed out last 
year as tribute to the insatiable appetite of traffic 
accidents on our highways and city streets? are on 
the march. 

They have been joined by hosts of untold thou- 
sands whose blood has spilled from mangled torn 
bodies over dusty pavements, down into curbs to 
wander in rivulets through the debris of the gutters 
of the last decade. Their spirit patrols are on every 
street — every highway— looking desperately trying to 
find the way of bringing their warning, their ad- 
monition of care and vigilance to the operation of 
your automobile, to you. Being now "Across the 
Veil" however, they are mute. Their pleadings can- 
not reach your ears. ^ - 

They can only meet those of you that come 
over. Your crossing will not be pleasant. You will 
not want to die. You will fight desperately to hang 
on to the pain-racked, paralyzed, half-conscious 
small bit of life left hi your body after the shrieking 
of torn steel and grinding of shattered glass, and 
first shock of blinding terrible pain subsides as your 
automobile quits rolling. It will be of no use. 

And as the murderous carnage goes on, you take 
your place on the rolls of those sacrificed to waste 
and carelessness, and your voice joins the- ever-ristog 
chant of protest from "Across the Veil". "Won't 
"they learn-^Iid I die to vain?" 

Now we approach the 4th of July. Being an- 
other three-day week end, it will send at least that 
many more on the "last trip." Unless you drive 
with sanity and caution, giving continual thought to 
safety of life and limb, it is possible that you, too, 
with life hurrying from your body forever will see 
too late the horrible waste of carelessness in driv- 

Much better, if you cannot abide by the rules 
of safety in motoring, that you stay at home. Are 
you whose names are on the roll to go ready and 
willing? Will dying to defend your "right of way" 
be worth while? 

Trespassing at the Capitol 

(By Special Correspondents. 
Washington, D. C. 


This column has never been disposed to pub- 
licize its contempt of newspaper columnists of the 
Westbrook Pegler type in the belief that no good 
purpose can be served in holding them up to scorn. 

However, for once in a decade t h is policy will 
be suspended to preserve in type the classical blis- 
tering Senator John H. Overton, of Louisiana, gave - 
Pegler to the' senate chamber one day last week. 

Characterizing Pegler as "the garbage man of 
columnists, the master of mendacity .".Senator Over- 
ton made answer to the scurrilous attacks rtf the 
columnist on the good name of the late Senator 
Huey P. Long. 

There are all kinds of liars," said the senator, 
"and Westbrook Pegler is the disgusting incarnation 
of them all. 

"It is, perhaps, too charitable to make the ob- 
servation that Pegler's effusions are to be attributed 
chiefly to gangrened liver and a diseased brain. It 
must be remembered that libel is Pegler's stock in 
trade. Without the spice of slander, his wares 
would find no market. His appetite grows with the 
filth on which it feeds until, no longer appeased by 
the libel of. the living, the garbage peddler turns 
jackal and digs into the grave. 

"Pegler recently was given a Pulitzer award. In 
his early years Pulitzer suffered the hardship of ill- 
compensated toil, felt the pangs or want and hun- 
ger, kri%w the needs and longings of impoverished 
labor for a better life. 

"It is a mockery that a Pulitzer award should 
be given to one whose syndicated column is fre- 
quently devoted to attempts to blast the hopes and 
aspirations of organized Labor. The process of Pul- 
itzerization has served only to add to Pegler's chronic 

"Pegler is America's outstanding representation 
of the perverts whom Edgar Allen Poe once des- 
cribed as "neither man nor woman, neither brute 
nor human, but ghouls.* "—Union Advocate, St. Paul. 

Dispelling the Fog 

By Charles Michelson 

Director of Publicity, 

Democratic National Committee 

There is a type of mind that re- 
gards the obvious as, 'unconvincing 
and that always looks around for 
a tortuous explanation of any phe- 
nomenon, however simple. 

The psychologists have a n a m e 
lor it. 

It would be charitable to attri- 
bute to Senator Nye, and a very 
few others of the Isolationist group, 
this character of Intellect in con- 
templation of their thesis that it 
may have been a British and not 
a Nazi submarine that . sank the 
American freighter Robin Moor, 
and Its peace-time cargo of every- 
thing from steel rails to women's 
stockings, in mid-ocean. 

"It wouldn't be wholly impossi- 
ble," the newspapers quote the 
North Dakota " Senator as saying, 
"for the British themselves to en- 
gineer little programs of that kind. 
Remember the Athenia — they have 
just been hoping for a si n ki n g and 
. looking for trouble." 

The idea Is not unfamiliar. The 
Nazis, it will be remembered, 
sought to convey, a similar thought 
when they intimated that the des- 
truction of the Athenia was a Bri- 
tish plant. The Athenia was tor- 
pedoed on a return trip to Cana- 
da a year and a half ago. 

Hitler destroyed Poland, because 
of the persecutions of Germans 
there; overwhelmed, Czecho-Slova- 
kia on the same excuse. He swamp- 
ed Holland and Belgium because 
the English intended to invade 
Oermany via these countries; and 

East., It was always' tbf, Utile, .copri-i 
try. vainly trying to be neutral, 
that was bullying Germany. 

In the matter of the Robin Mcor 
— the mate of the doomed cargo 
ship was summoned aboard the 
submarine with his ship's papers. 
He and others tell of the U-boat 
captain's broken English, and they 
saw or heard nothing to cast 'any 
doubts on the Teutonic complexion 
of the outfit. Perfidious Albion 
must have taken the precaution of 
having German-speaking actors 
man the ship, made up to carry 
ouc the deception. Doubtless the 
destruction of the freight, sent to 
supply the ordinary peace-time 
needs of a British possession at tne 
southern tip of Africa, was pars of 
the play-acting. 
What Can Be Done About It? 
Nothing could be more absurd; 
not even the implication of the 
suggestion of a couple of other iso- 
lationist Senators that "they hoped 
that this Is not one of those in- 
cidents that the 7 interventionists 
have been saying the President is 
looking for to get us into war.' 

What "Interventionist" is sup- 
posed to have said this, or who he 
said is to, cowhere appears. 

At this writing, except for an 
unofficial interview by an unnanied 
Nazi authority, there has been no 
reply from the. Hitler outfit to our 
protest at the sinking of an Ameri- 
can- ship, far from any war zone; 
that carried no war -material or 
munitions, and the identity of 
which had been ascertained by the 
raider. The newspaper interview, 
cabled 1 from Berlin, stated that the 
Germans would sink any ship any- 
where that was carrying "contra- 
£0 on down the line to the Near band." Contraband is anything that 

they care to use as an excuse lor 
trie destruction of lives and ships. 
' 'Naturally, there' is much inter :wt 
in" what the American Government 
.'w^ll: dq.'ia; the face of this deliber- 
•aeevassav-V 1 .; 

It could be made the base for a 
would seem to be the least likely 
outcome. We might ask indemnity 
and. if that was refused, could seize 
German property to reprisal or we 
could do as this country did more 
than a century ago — start to go 
after the raiders as pirates— out- 
laws entitled to no grace. This 
would parallel our action when we 
broke up the blackmailing enter- 
prise of the Barbary marauders 
that used to seize American ' ships 
and hold their crews for ransom. 

The alternative would appear to 
be to submit to the doctrine that 
Hitler rules the seas and agree 
that American ships could move 
nowhere without the peril of being 
blown up wherever the' raiders 
could find them. That would seem 
to be the farthest possible from 
the course this country will pur- 

As to Germany, she Is expected 
to take one of two positions. First, 
she may adopt the policy indicated 
by the newspaper interview, as- 
serting her intention of sinking 
.ships bearing contraband — reserving 
contraband — while making no ad- 
mission that the Robto Moor was 
the victim of a Nazi submarine. Se- 
cond, she may deny any knowledge 
of the affair, and say none of her 
U-boats was in that part of the 
jworld when the sinking occurred. 
That is what she claimed when 
the Athenia was destroyed. Very 
likely, we will know the Nazi posi- 
tion—or, at least, the formal atti- 
tude—before this letter is published. 
Criticism — But No Program 

In speculating on what will 
come next, I know no more than 
any other newspaper commentator; 

Labor Research Directors 
Discuss National Problems 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics 
of the Department of Labor last 
week held its second annual con- 
ference with research directors of 
national * and international labor 
unions to discuss labor problems 
growing out of the national emer- 
gency. The conference could well 
have been called a "Symposium on 
Current National Problems." Here 
are some of the facts presented to" 
the conference: 

' Regardless of wage increases, 
rise in the cost of living will more 
than eat up these wage "hikes", and 
in the end leave the worker on the 
short end of the deal. With food 
becoming as essential as munitions, 
production of agricultural products 
will have to be increased to the 
maximum. The danger of inflation 
Is so great, that even the most 
drastic efforts on the part of the 
government may not be able to 
prevent it. opinion of experts is 
that our economic order will not 
be able to survive a period of in- 
flation such as fallowed the last 
World War. At least 1,200,000 more 
workers, both skilled and unskilled, 
will be needed In the defense in- 
dustries under the program already 
'contracted for," and this program 
is being enlarged and increased 

Number of apprentices in indus- 
try has increased 28 per cent dur- 
ing the past six months, the num- 
ber now totalling some 51,000. The 
defense, program, however, will re- 
quire some 500,000 apprentices, or 
10 times the present number. Char- 
ges that the labor unions are Im- 
peding the program of apprentice 
training axe false and vicious, the 
exact opposite being the case. Gov- 
ernment officials say that they have 
received the most wholehearted co- 
operation In that regard from la- 
bor, with apprentice quotas having 
been raised very liberally. When 
the defense program gets under full 
speed, many skilled workers will 
have to be drawn from non-defense 
to defense Industries. Economists 
say that the greater the plant ex- 
pansion undertaken "now, the less 
will be curtailment of durable con- 
sumer goods as well as less dislo- 
cation of the economic system. Pre- 
sent expenditures for defense pur- 
poses is about 17 billion dollars a 
year. To obtain the needed effort, 
this may have to be increased to 
40, or 45, billion dollars yearly. Were 
the national income raised to 110 
billions yearly, which some say is 
possible, there would be no extreme 
economic dislocation. 

A survey discloses that there is 
a lot of Idle plant capacity which 
has not been brought into the de- 
fense picture, because some of the 
big boys insist on hogging all the 
profits and refuse to let out sub- 
contracts. Despite all efforts "to 
take the work to the workers rath- 
er than the workers to the work," 
we will face a tremendous problem 
of stranded workers when the de- 
fense program comes to an end 
unless" a solution to the problem 
is found now. Another problem that 
will have to be tackled now Is that 
of unemployment which the coun- 
try will face In the post-war period. 
No one doubts that it will come 
upon us like a raging torrent — and 
"we won't have any democracy if 
millions of our workers are inde- 
finitely but of jobs." 

Would Tax "Intangible Property" 
To Increase Pay of Soldiers 

Rep. Patman, Texas, proposes 
that pay of soldiers be increased 
$20 a month, the money to be 
raised not by increasing the bur- 
den of the common taxpayer, 'buc 
rather by taxing "intangible pro- 
perty," which now escapes its just 
share of taxes. 

Patman's plan is incorporated in 
a bill introduced to the House last 
week. The bill would give each sol- 
dier, to addition to his regular 
monthly pay, a $20 "service certifi- 
cate," redeemable to two years, with 
interest at the rate of 3 per cent. 
To defray the cost. *=e proposes an 
annual excise tax of 2 mills (one- 
fifth of one per cent) on "intangi- 
I ble property" of holdings of more 

than §50,000. This would ,tax, he 
says, between 300 and 500 billion 
dollars of property, and raise funds 
sufficient to Increase the pay of 
more than 2,000,000 soldiers. 

One of the great weaknesses of 
present tax laws, both State and 
Federal, Is that great masses of in- 
tangible wealth virtually escape 
taxation — stocks, bonds. Treasury 
notes, and the like. It is common 
"knowledge that people of great 
wealth Invest their money to "In- 
tangible property" to order to es- 
cape taxation. It is true, as Patman 
says, that only the profits of "in- 
tangible property" comes in for 
taxation under the income tax 
laws, but the property itself_ re- 
mains virtually untouched. But 
thus far, Congress has turned a 
deaf ear to all efforts to tax hid- 
den wealth, and Patman's bill un- 
doubtedly will be placed in ■ a 
House Ways and Means Committee 
pigeonhole, where Its pleasant (or 
unpleasant) dreams will not be dls. 
turbed by human hand. 

Icz, Mich., has introduced a con- 
current resolution to the House for 
a Congressional investigation "to"f"\ 
determine the reasons for the in- 
creased cost of food." OPACS chief, 
Leon Henderson, has asked some 
of. the large bakeries not to In- 
crease the price of bread without 
first consulting with his office. An 
effort will be made* to conserve rub- 
ber, not because of an immediate 
shortage but to build up large 
stockpiles. It looks as though OPM 
may act favorably on proposals for 
steel expansion in the far West. 
Establishment of priorities are now 
coming In so fast, that one has to 
get the latest daily information to 
keep up with it. Census figures dis- 
close that 219,382 farms of from 20 
to 40 acres and 83,917 farms of 
from 50 to 99 acres and 59,994 
farms of from 100 to 499 acres have 
disappeared during the past 10 
years. That's not a healthy condi- 
tion for agriculture, since the fam- 
ily-sized farm is the backbone of 
agriculture of this country. 


Nazi Propaganda Gets Jolt 

The Government order to the 
Nazis to shut down" their propa- 
ganda offices In this country — the 
German Library of Information, 
Trahsocean News Service, and the 
German Tourist Bureau— brings a 
sigh of relief to Uncle t Sam's post- 
men, particularly those on Capitol 
Hill. The paper companies, however, 
will lose by the decision to treat 
Nazi propaganda here the same as 
democratic propaganda Is treated 
to Germany, since many tons of 
paper were used dally to carry the 
messages of disunion and hate. 

Many members of Congress will 
miss "Facts In Review," neatly 
printed and ably edited propagan- 
da magazine published by the Ger- 
man Library of Information, under 
the supervision of George .Sylvester 
Viereck, the old Kaiser propagan- 
dist and now registered as a Nazi 
foreign agent. To many with a 
sense of humor, "Facts in Review:' 
afforded not a little amusement to 
see the Nazis portrayed not as 
burners of books but as patrons of 
the fine arts* and sciences. To the 
fascist-minded members of Con- 
gress — and there are several of 
them in this democratic represen- 
tative assembly — it merely afforded 
additional "proof that Hitler, Goer' 
tog, Goebbels, et al are the most 
maligned and the least understood 
gentry on earth. 

Minimum Old Age Pensions 

California's Senator Downey is 
still trying to get Congress to do 
something about equalizing old age 
pensions and placing them on a 
decent basis. The other day, he In- 
troduced a resolution asking for an 
investigation of old age pensions 
by a Senatorial committee of seven, 
with a view to establishing a na- 
tional minimum pension. Although 
universally admitted that the pre- 
sent old age assistance system is 
haphazard and unjust, with recip- 
ients of some states receiving pen- 
sions five times and more, the 
amount paid to other states, it has 
been impossible to get Congress to 
do anything about it. The trouble 
is that the Federal government 
matches State funds, so that old 
folks residing in poor and back- 
ward states are penalized.

Current Capital Comment 

Rep. Tinkham, the Massachusetts 
lion hunter, says that FDR is not 
a ' Democrat at all, but a "radical 
Communist." ^ome of the members 
of Congress are complaining be- 
cause, they say, "Congress is being 
shut out in the cold rain by the 
President." What can Congress ex- 
pect when the filibuster is used in 
the Senate to prevent measures 
from reaching a vote, a tactic em- 
ployed by a minority to defeat the 
purposes of .representative govern- 
ment. Senator Wheeler is becom- 
ing known as the chief heckler in 
the Senate of the Administration. 
Regardless of what the Issue is, he 
can always be depended upon to 
put to "his two-bits worth" against 
the Administration. Rep Tenerow- 

No other American is so well 
qualified to write about the Russian 
Revolution as Louis Fischer. As a 
European correspondent he saw the 
Russian Revolution develop from 
the middle of the 1920's "until it 
had spent itself and at last be- 
came the dictatorship of the Geor- 
gian tyrant known as Joseph Stal- 
in. Mr. Fischer went to Moscow re- 
presenting an American newspaper, 
and at the beginning of the fourth 
decade had stayed there through, 
the Five Year Plan, until the pur- 
ges of the latter part of the 1930's 
began. He had every opportunity 
to see and know the inside of po- 
litical Russia and its economic 
phases and social life in that de- 
cade. Like most. American liberals 
of the first twenty years of the 
Russian Revolution, he hoped that 
it would succeed as "a noble ex- 
periment." He hoped that the pro- 
letariat, given responsibility, given 
education, given a middle class 
economic environmentrt-wtiuld de- 
velop leadership and take a place 
in the mechanized industrial world 
cf the twentieth century. He saw 
gradually that Russia was trying 
to do to decades what western civ- 
ilization had been doing in cen- 
turies, to move from the feudal 
world with its primitive commerce, 
i;s subsistence-agriculture, Its mer- 
cantile rather than financial cap- 
italism, into a highly complex civil- 
ization completely mechanized and 
organized on' the basis of finance- 
capitalism, and what might be cal- 
led an approximate beginning of 
industrial democracy. The jump 
was too long for Russia. It fell into 
the hands of Stalin. The Revolution 
began to fail. The dictatorship pas- 
sed from the proletariat to the 
Kremlin and became a one-man 
show like that to Italy and in Ger- 
many. Louis Fischer saw all this. 
He saw' why the purges came and 
he saw their brutality and ruth 
lessness, their sophisticated cruelty, 
and he sets it all down in this au- 
tobiography. A brave, fine, moving 
story he has written! No one who 
wishes to understand the Revolu- 
tion of the third and fourth de- 
cades in continental Europe, should 
omit this book. It is forthright re- 
porting and it is full of wisdom.

Does strenuous work during the 
hot days of haying and harvest get j 
you down? A dull headache and' 
loss of energy In hot weather may 
mean you are low on salt. You are 
bound to go "flat" if you lose whole 
quarts of salty water by perspira- 
tion and add" water without salt. 
Your body needs salt. Add a little 
to the drinking water each day; 
use more on the food you eat. 


Young pigs will not be much con- 
cerned about the hog cholera vac- 
cines, but you will — if you want to 
avoid losses from this swine di- 
sease. Dr. H. C. H. Kernkamp, vet- 
erinarian at University Farm, ad- 
vises that the young crop be vac- 
cinated a week or 10 'days before 
or after weaning for effective and 
long-lasting immunity. 

The 1941 4-H enrollment is now 
completed, and projects have the

just what Is going to happen or 
when. Possibly a considerable) In- 
terval will elapse before the deci-

the almost interminable succession 
of notes, protests and^ conversa- 
tions that preceded Woodrow Wil- 
son's authorizing the arming .of 
merchant ships to resist the sub- 
marine raiders in the first World 
War. It will take more than .put- 
ting a gun crew on our freighters 
and passenger liners this time to 
secure them against attack. Not 
only are the submarines of today 
of wider range and ,power than 
they were in 1917, but to them Is 
added the menace of fast surface 
raiders and bombing, from the air. 

The President referred to this to 
his fireside talk when he described 
the convoy system as outmoded. 
He indicated then that security for 
American cargoes "was to be ar- 
ranged,, and he does not. speak to 
such terms unless he has In mind

It may be worthy of note that 
up to this time, no Isolation spokes- 
man, among those who commented 
on the Incident has suggested what, 
in his opinion, our Government 
should do In the premises. That is 
in. accord with the thesis of the 
foes of the administration that 
whatever the President does is 
wrong. That was the G.O.P. agenda 
of last year's campaign. Apparently 
the Isolationists of today are even 
picking up the rest of the formula

Earth 'Swallows' Mother 
And Child At Fertile 

To have the earth literally open 
and swallow one uo was the un- 
usual experience of Mrs. Albin 
Bartz and her six-month old baby 
daughter, Barbara Ann, of Fertile. 
Mrs. Bartz was walking about In 
her back yard with the baby in 
her arms when, without warning, 
the ground suddenly gave way be- 
neath them, dropping both into an 
old, 20 foot cess pool which had 
been covered with planking and sod 
in 1918. In the fall, Barbara Ann 
was knocked from her mother's 
arms and her mother was able to 
see only one leg emerging from the- 
four feet • of mud and water. She 
pulled the baby out while crying 
for help which brought Mr. Bartz 
to the scene with a ladder. Both, 
were rescued in short order and. 
showed no ill effects except for a 
bruise here and there.

Runners" At Local Fair 

From the foothills of the Cum- 
berland Mountains, Mt. Vernon,, 
Rock Castle County, Kentucky, 
where they grew up from child- 
hood and developed their musical 
talents, come the "Cumberland 
Ridge Runners;*; one of radio's 
most versatile aggregations; They 
will make a personal appearance at 
the Pennington County Fair July 
30 and 31, and Aug. i and 2, as a 
feature of the WLSf Stage Show. 

Generally known as Doc, Karl, 
Marty and Buddy, they were christ- 
ened Doctor Howard Hopkins, Karl 
Victor Davis, Hartford Connecticut 
Taylor and Odes McDowell. Hop- 
kins being a seventh son, his par- 
ents believed, he was destined to 
become a doctor so they christened 
him Doctor. Taylor's father was a 
blacksmith who bought nails . and 
other supplies for his shop from 
Hartford, .Conn., which gave him 
the inspiration for his son's name.. 
The other two seem to have acquir-; 
ed their names in the customary 

When they gained favor in their 
community as entertainers, musical: 
as well as comic,. "They were al- 
ways on the run", to quote them, 
"to pie suppers, bos suppers, com 
huskin's, quiltin' parties and what- 
not", and the adopted "Cumberland 
Ridge Runners" as the name of 
their act when they went to WLS, 
Chicago, in 1930 for an audition. 
They were with this station" five 
years, going over to WJJD, Chicago, 
In 1935, being prime favorites for 
five vears on that station's "Sup- 
pertime Frolic", a two-hour pro- 
gram. Now they are back with 
WLS, where they first gained popu- 
larity with their distinctive and hi- 
larious style of 'entertainment. They 
are a whole show in themselves. 

The "Ridge Runners", hot long 
ago, discovered a new ratfio per- 
sonality who is known only as "The 
Blue E«ed Boy". Looking like some- 
thing from the comic pages, ; this 
discovery has' scored an emphatic 
hit with radio and theatre audi- 
ences. He willjie an added attrac-

Another Deferment Ordered 

Selective service headquarters in 
Washington instructed local boards 
Saturday to exempt from the draft 
men with dependents to whose sup- 
port thev make "any substantial 
contribution." The order applies to 
men already in class 1-A as well 
as to those not yet classified. 

Men who married after .register- 
ing will be required to show that 
they were married "in the ordin- 
ary course of human effairs" and 
not to evade army training. 

.In a memorandum to state di- 
rectors, deputy selective service di- 
rector, said that the administrative 
machinery was being "unduly bur- 
dened" by the growing number of 
married men seeking discharge 
from the army on dependency 
The memorandum added: 
"Local boards should - remember 
that every husband is under legal 
obligation to support his wife and 
children and that obligation is not 
removed because his .wife has cho- 
sen to aid hi the family mainten- 
ance. The newly married registrant- 
has the same general right to de- 
ferment as any other married re- 

"In the case .of a registrant whose, 
financial status is such that the 
local board believes his dependents 
may support themselves in some 
fashion, despite his induction, it 
should be remembered" that noth- 
ing In the law or regulations re- 
quires a registrant or his depend- 
ents to liquidate then- capital as- 
sets and use up the proceeds be- 
fore deferment may be established. 
"The registrant may hot be re-: 
quired to borrow on his life in- 
surance, sell or mortgage his home,, 
deplete his savings or other assets 
before bein? enlttled to deferment." 
General Hershey said the appli- 
cations for discharge from the 
army were of three types: 

1. Registrants who are not de-. 
ferred because their, wives- work, 
and whose wives find themselves 
unable to carry, on after, the hus- 
bands are inducted. 

2. Newly married registrants 
whose claims for deferment have 
not been recognized because of 
their recent marriage dates. 

3. Married .registrants whose de- 
pendents may support themselves 
in some fashion, despite the disrup- 
tion of family units following in-

Ginger Rogers Presented 
{ In Working Girl Drama 

Giving its Versatile star a most 
dramatic and -most- sparkling hu- 
man role, "Kitty Foyle" presents 
Ginger Rogers as the .heroine of 
Christopher Morley's best-sailing 
■novel, with a hand-picked cast en- 
acting the supporting roles of the 
well-known tale of a white-collar 
girl's career. "Kitjty Foyle" will be 
shown at the Falls Theatre Sun- 
day, Monday, and Tuesday. 

The book has been praised as 
"the natural history of a woman," 
and this telling phrase is said to fit 
the picture perfectly. The story 
deals with the life of a spirited 
Irish girl in Philadelphia, her 
stormy romance with a blue-blood- 
ed scion of wealth and the recur- 
ring conflicts that, romance brings 
about in her efforts to adjust her- 
self to life. 

Born on the "wrong "side of the 
tracks," Kitty envies the Philadel- 
phia socialites as a youngster, and 
later as a working girl falls in love 
with one of- them, Wm. Starfford, 

only to be disappointed in him 
when he fails to propose. 

She goes to New York and gets 
another job, but Wyn follows, and 
after a romantic interlude they are 
married. "Too late, Kitty learns 
what , marriage to Wyn means — r 
the stuffy - social life his' family 
have laid out for him To avoid 
spoiling both their lives she flees 
back to New Yorkr-obtains an an- 
nulment, goes to work again and 
resumes her acquaintance with 
Mark- Eisen, a young doctor. 

As well as affording Miss Rogers 
a brilliant opportunity to display 
her dramatic talents, the film gives 
two clever young actors their finest 
roles. Dennis Morgan, the much, 
sought-after leading, man of many 
recent offerings, is cast as the weak 
but likeable Wyn, and Janies Craig, 
an "unknown" whom studio execu- 
tives are acclaiming, plays the quiet

Mrs. Martha Sathre Passes On 

This community was deeply 
shocked at learning of the death 
of Mrs. Martha Sathre at a hospi- 
tal in Thief River Falls Friday eve- 
ning. She had been taken to the 
hospital earlier in the week and 
her children all called, as she was 
then very low. 

She -had lived before and since

stead four miles northeast of town 
and had been actively associated, 
with the- church, the Legion, Alix-^

To this union were born. 8 children, 
two of whom preceded her in death.

River, Mrs. Thomas Furlong of 
Havre; Mont., Mrs. Ed. Dickinson 
of Furlong, Mont., Bennie and Wil- 
liam of Middle River, 7 grandchild- 
ren arijt rnimerous other relatives... 

Funeral' services were held' Mon- 
day afternoon in Middle River, at 
the First Lutheran church at 2 P. 
M., with Rev. G. T. I. Berg officiat- 
ing. Burial was made in the First 
Lutheran cemetery. 

The honorary pallbearers were A. 
E. Blom, Carl Lovsness, Hans Lar- 
son, A. B. Isaacson, R. D. V. Carr,

It will be extremely gratifying 
to the ball team and all its well 
wishers, to know that Orville John- 
son, late of Lancaster, who made 
such a good showing in pitching 
the game for the team here a week 
ago Sunday, is now working here

returned home Saturday. Vic has 
been attending a course in refrig-

"If I were in a shoefc-threshing 
ring this year, I would insist on a 
meeting to talk over weed prob- 
lems," says C. H. Schrader, exten- 
sion weed specialist at University 
Farb. "It should be clearly under- 
stood in advance that the grain 
separator and the wagons are to be 
cleaned betweeb. jobs, and trucks 
hauling grain along roads covered. 
A little work at threshing with the 
blower and the broom will save a 
lot of work with the springtooth 
and. the duckfoot next year, or the 
year after." 

South St. Paul, Minn., July 1; 
1931: -Recent Aharp downturns in 
slaughter cattle prices served to 
curtail marketings and as a result 
of the supply abridgment the trade 
displayed a healthier .tone. Mon- 
day's market, according to the Fed- 
eral-State Market News Service, 
was generally steady, while slaugh- 
ter steers and yearlings had a ten- 
dency to strengthen ~ on the fol- 
lowing session. Most other killing 
■classes were steady with the close 
■of last week, although bulls were 
in extremes 25c lower. Offeri ngs of 
ptock cattle were light and that 
market also had a tendency to firm. 
^Several loads Good and Choice 
■light- and medlumweight steers top- 
ped at $10.50 and there were Choice 
806 lb. heifers at $10.65. Medium to 
Good slaughter steers bulked at 
$8.75 to $9.75. Fourteen loads of 
Canadian cattle, largely steers,

U. S. Geodetic Survey ; 
Is Now Made Locally 

(Continued from Paee.Onel 
the survey is for mapping data. 
The survey is a continuation 'of 
work which was being done two or 
three years ago in and near Bel- 
trami county, with the .present 
crew taking up where that work left 

The method used is quite techni- 
cal to a layman. The method of 
surveying, called triangulation, is 
based upon the trigonometric pro- 
position, that if one side and the 
angles of a triangle are known, 
the remaining sides can be compu- 
ted. Thus from certain known lo- 
cations, by means of towers, lights 
and instruments. It is possible to 
compute distances of distant lines 
■without actual tape-and-line meas- 

The importance of triangulation 
as a control survey for all other 
kinds of surveys has been long re- 
cognized. The coast and geodetic 
survey is extending over the coun- 
try a network of triangulation to 

United Skates Tuesday without re- 
maining ': together .in a caravan. 
Reports . are. . that ike more than 
1,000 visitors to Canada were treat- 
ed exceptionally well and were 
urged to return to that country in 
the hear future. 

Seek To Close WPA 

In Marshall County 

A requist that all WPA projects 
in Marshall county he closed dur- 
ing the haying and harvesting sea- 
son was made by the county wel- 
fare board recently because of the 
shortage of farm laborers caused 
by so many of the young men from 
the county entering the army. 
There are four WPA projects oper- 
ating in the county at present, giv- 
ing employment to about 60 men 
and more than 100 men have been 
called for army service. The. high- 
way 75 paving project will call for 
additional men. By closing the pro- 
jects the harvesting season the 
workers will be available for farm 
work and then can return to the 
WPA projects in the fall, the board 

determine latitudes and longitudes 
of permanently marked points. A 
great deal of this work is already 
completed and when done, no place 
in the nation will be more than 2o 
miles from a point whose geogra- 
phic position is accurately known. 
The group is divided into three 
crews. The" first crew erects the 
towers which are used in the work, 
which are about the size and height 
of forest fire towers. The second 
crew works only at night, doing 
the actual survey work between 
towers by means of the lights. The 
third crew comes along afterward 
and tears down the towers. When 
this crew came north they stored 
the towers they had been using, 
and picked up others in this state 
which had been previously stored. 
Incidentally, a few members of this 
crew also worked several years ago 
on the Beltrami project east of the 
present survey area. 

In charge of the work here Is 
Lt. Henry J. Healy. William N. 
Martin is Ensign, and Martin Z v 
Braden signalman. 

A tower, one on a correction sur- 
vey which will connect with a geo-, 
detic survey made years ago west 
of us, is located in the northeast 
corner of the Pair Grounds here. 
This westward survey is made to 
connect with markers west to as- 
certain the correctness of the pre- 
sent survey. 

When this proof survey was com- 
pleted last night the crew reported 
th? Fair Grounds marker for the 
TJ. 3. Department of Commerce as 

"Station is located in the north- 
east "comer of the Pair Grounds in

Crookston Legion team 
Wins From Locals 18-7 

Playing with a make-shift lineup 
— seven regulars were absent — the 
local American Legion junior base- 
ball team suffered its fifth loss at. 
the hands of the Crookston Juniors 
by an 18 to 7 score. The game was 
played Thursday night at Crook- 

Next games on schedule for the 
local Legion nine are two home 
games to be played at the Fair- 
grounds. East Grand Forks comes 
here Wednesday for a regular 
League tussle. Warren will be here 
Friday next week. 

Scoring freely, the Crookston 
team got off to an early 13 to 
lead in the first , three innings. 
They were held scoreless during the 
fourth and fifth innings while the 
Thief River nine was scoring then- 
seven runs. Scoring ended in the 
sixth inning when the home team 
scored another five runs to bring 
the count to 18^7. 

Biddick, with a triple and single, 
and Matheson, with two singles led 
the Thief River hitting- attack. 
Dom contributed to the cause with 
a double. Topping the Crookston 
batsmen was left-fielder Swanson, 
with a home run and double. Med- 
ved- banged out a double and single, 
and Sannes, Laurent, and Morlan 
got two singles each to help the 
Crookston baseballers. 

Nine errors disturbed Lorentson, 
who allowed 14 hits, fanned 7 and 
issued 6 walks. Laurent, on the 
mound for Crookston, was in good 
form, allowing 7 hits; fanning 15 
and issuing 4 walks.

lowing McCrady to reach first, and 
botti runners advanced on an over- 
throw at first base. Touluose then

to score both Fremling and Mc- 
Crady. A hit.batsman sent Toulouse 
to second and was put out on a 
fielder's choice at third, ending the 
rally. 'The All = Stars scored their

Behind the 5 hit pitching pf Al 
Ness, Hartz clipped Red Lake. Falls 
Monday night by a 10 to 3 count. 
A big second inning— Hartz got 
nine runs — spelled defeat for the 
Lakers. The red, white and blue 
clad., team added another run In 
the third to complete their scoring. 
Red Lake Palls pushed a run across 
in the 4th and two more in the 
5th. Hartz made a futile attempt to 
hurry the ball game along when 
a little . drizzle threatened to spoil 
the appearance .of their new out-

Hartz' entry in" the Tri-County 
Diamondball league blossomed out 
in nifty patriotic outfits (they're 
red, white, and blue) the other 
night when they met and defeated 
Red Lake Falls. Land CLakes 
Manager Walt Larson, perhaps bet- 
ter known as chief ; anti-Hartz heck- 
ler, was On hand, for the; game and 
quizzed, "Where'if'you get the sis- 
sy suits?" He was also heard to 
cry- out, "Oh, Xmas tree!" Last 
week it was the Bridgeman gang 
that added color to the league. 
They turned out In new gold and 
black uniforms. : They also won 
their' game. Maybe "the" new suits 
have something 'to do with It, after 
all. At any rate, wjhen the teams 
are playing. It is quite a spectacle. 
More fans ought to be on hand 1 to 
take in these games. They're free 
and well worth the walk or ride to 
the Fairgrounds. 

Forward March 

That 11 to 1 defeat the local base- 
ballers handed Red Lake Falls on 
Sunday seems to prove the team 
is on the march. Five extra-oase 
hits were registered with Noraes 
clouting two doubles, and Bob and 
Wally DuChamp and Johnny Jar- 
anson getting one each. All this 
is a continuation from last. Sun- 
day when the locals nicked War- 
ren's nine for a batch of long hits. 
Claims are now that the new Inspi- 
ration has-been created . by : , pie 
Ness, recently " named" manager. :it 
was he who signalled the boys in 
for runa^arid. Encouraged, them at 
the plate. It was he who, had. the 
team talking it up ail the time' and 
was giving instructions. This new 
appointment ought to start a n»w 
era in baseball circles In town. All 

the team needed was spirit and 
encouragement.- It appears they 
have that now.

On Top Again 

After a short-lived intermission, 
Hartz' diamondballers are on top 
of the heap; again. Taint fair to 
dedicate so much space in a "column 
to one team, same will say," but I 
want to take space now with a 
few statistics and compilations to 
show" Just why the champs are 
hogging- the coveted spot in the 
campaign at present. Local pitch- 
ing patriarch Al Ness, who handles 
the hurling chores vfor Hartz, has 
this year hung up V record of 5 
wins and 1 loss. In establishing this- 
record Ness has struok out 63 of 
the batters who have faced him, 
issued 21 walks, and allowed a to- 
tal of 26 hits. Using -sc^ne compila^ 
tion'sense by ovef-taiing .that part 
of the brain from" which mathema- 
tical knowledge emanates we find 
that Ness per game, struck out an 
average of 105 batters, issued an 
average of 35 walks her game, and 
allowed 45 hits per game.- Good 
pitching wins games, but good hit- 
ting helps/so take a look at this:

lic employment ever seen in Thief 
River Falls turned out to be last 
Monday when John L. Disanto,

vision in the New York State Em- 
ployment department, interviewed 
nearly 300 persons for the various 
open jobs on construction of the 
U. S. air base on an island just 
east of Newfoundland. 

Over 500 reported at the state 
employment office here during the 
day. As many became .acquainted' 
with what the project was and 
■.vhat class of employees were de- 
sired a large number did not seek 
to be interviewed. A total of 310 
filed application blanks and of 
these 286 were given an interview. 
The job-seekers - came from Pen- 
nington and the other counties 
north toward the Canadian boun- 

A total of 124 was accepted for 
a large variety of jobs. These men 
will go to St. Paul within the next 
few weeks where they will .sign a 
contract for employment to assist 
in constructing the airoplane base, 
land for which was procured by 
the federal government under the 
Lend-Lease act with Great Britain. 
The jobs are expected to cover a 
2-year period. 

The successful applicants were_ 
fingerprinted, photographed, vacci- 
nated and given a thorough medi- 
cal examination. The FBI will pass 
upon their merits also while in St.

In an effort to place wheat mar-

wheat producers before harvest, the 
Pennington county AAA committee 
is taking steps to set up machin-

the farm program Carl R. Ander-

Marketing quotas will be in ef- 
fect on all farms on which wheat 
is raised, Mr. Anderson stated, ad- 
ding that as soon as wheat acre- 
age on a farm is measured, mar- 
keting cards can be issued. 

If seeded acreage is not larger 
than the wheat acreage allotment, 
or 15 acres, a marketing card- will 
be issued permitting all wheat pro- 
tiucedion the farm_to be marketed 
without penalty. "In order to mar-,- 
ket wheat on farms on which are 
.seeded 15 acres or less of wheat in 
1341 or those on which- the normal 
production of acreage: planted is 
less than 200 bushels, it is neces-

An event that few communities 
in this part of the state can boast 
of was observed Saturday evening 
and Sunday at the Black River 
Lutheran church when the congre-

Two Of Strongest Teams In This

Ball Field At 2:30 Sunday 

Plummer's baseball team comes 
to town this coming Sunday to meet 
the local nine at the Fairgrounds 
in what appears to be the feature 
game of tie year. Plummer, with, 
only one loss against an otherwise 
perfect record, boasts one of the 
strongest teams in this area. Thief 
River Falls' record is equally out- 
standing. The local baseballers have 
won five straight games. Only los- 
ses chalked up against them are 
two- "practice" games, both with. 
Plummer in the early part of the 
season. Scores In these games were 
close, leaving little to judge the 
better outfit. 

Incidents occurring during the 
early part of the season in regard 
to- the Northern Minny League set- 
up created "a little ill-feeling be- 
tween Thief River and Plummer 
managers and players. This "ill- 
feeling", plus the fine records of 
both teams, ought to make Sun- 
day's game worthwhile for all fans. 

Both teams are expected to be at

A '•feeler" to find out the consensus of opinion 
of the people of this country in regard to sending 
American soldiers outside the Western Hemisphere 
was sent out by General Marshall during the past 
•week-end. He asserted the president should be given 
this power. 

It is already evident that our people are opposed 
to such a power under general conditions which is 
treasonable enough. For instance. Americans are 
favorable to sending our soldiers over to take com- 
mand of Iceland. But they are opposed to sending 
.an army to fight on the European mainland or In 

A limitation in regard to who should be sent 
"across could be made and the opinion of our people 
might be more favorable. That is that only those 
•who have volunteered or enlisted on their own free 
will be sent. To send a conscripted soldier across 
we feel is too much like sending a person off to be 
executed against his will, which is not democratic. 

But the time for Uncle Sam to send an army 
over to fight Hitler is about past. If Hitler is to 
ie beaten he must be beaten within the next month 
or two. After that he is either going to be too 
strong to be beaten or will be beaten without, our 
army's efforts. 

We think it is up to England to exert more ef- 
forts in beating Hitler than she is doing now. We 
like Litvlnoff's request from Moscow that England 
come to the aid to defeat Hitler now by making an 
invasion of France and make the Nazi fight on two 
fronts. If the deathsting could be dealt Hitler in 
such a manner it is now for England to do its "bit" 
After Hitler is beaten we can abandon our defense 
efforts as the danger is then over. 

about it as the GOP press of the state does today. 


The pestiferous biting insect so commonly known 
to us as the mosquito is objectionable in more ways 
than one which makes it mandatory that we do 
something about ridding ourselves of it altogether. 
Until recently it hasn't appeared that the mosquito 
has been injurious to any- extent otherwise than 
that it has" been an annoyance causing us discom- 
fort as it attempts to bite us here and there. It 
has also annoyed cattle and horses, causing them to 
be less useful than otherwise. 

But this .week reports have reached us from 
different points that the mosquito is a carrier of 
sleeping sickness, a disease that has again become 
prevalent among horses in the Northwest. Cases 
of persons being ill with this disease comes from 
Fargo, Ada, and points in North Dakota. 

Two things can be done to prevent mosquitoes. 
Either all stagnant sloughs or ponds can be drained 
or made immune from the batching of mosquito 
eggs by putting oil or similar liquids on top of this 
water which prevents the hatching of the insect 
eggs as the oil spreads on top of the ponds/ We are 
told discarded lubricating oil is as good as any for 
such use. 


Last week we. as well as all the GOP newspapers 
of the suite, received a news release from the state 
department of taxation telling of the fact that the 
Oliver Iron Mining Company (The Steel Trust) had 
been comDelled to pay occupational iron ore tax at 
the $4.45 valuation rate per ton. The Steel Trust 
wanted to pay one a valuation of only $4.05 per ton. 
By gaining this decision from the state supreme 
court the state tax commissioner claimed a gain of 
about $1,800,000 for the year for our great state. 

That is all good and well. But think of how 
much the State of Minnesota would have gotten 
if the Steel Trust would have h?.d to pay if On: 
state tax commissioner insisted that the iron min- 
ing concerns pay as they did when Elmer Benson 
was governor. The valuation then was not S4.45 per 
ton but $7.50 per ton. Then Howard Spaeth, the 
tax commissioner, could have boasted of a raise of 
over $10,000,000 gain to the state. And that is many 
times greater than what S. J. Reader, N. W. Elsberg, 
et al, cheated the state out of. 

And this is something we want to refer back to. 
•With iron ore now in greater demand than ever 
Bnd defense work causing everything to rise the 
steel trust hasn't sen fit to raise the valuation on 
iron ore so they would have to pay a higher tax to 
cur state. Of course, it isn't consistent that Harold 
Stassen, et al, can demand that the steel trust raise 
tne price. The $50,000 -fhich the steel trust donated 
st a session at Duluth 1 in 1938 was not given the 
state GOP campaign fund for naught. 

It then simmers down to the fact that it is more 
legitimate to let the steel trust get away with a 
$10,000,000 "seal" than Reader, Elsberg, et al, with 
a $1,000,000 "bag"? We must say we don't like to see 
-anyone get away with a million dollar theft but 
we like a lot less to see someone get away with a 
theft ten times as big and little or nothing said 


A report last week from St. Paul telling that 
the State's indebtedness has been reduced several 
million dollars must be taken with a grain of salt. 
To claim that the state's indebtedness has been re- 
duced and that the taxpayer Is that much better 
off is purely an idle dream. 

The state legislature of 1939 passed a law en- 
abling the state to transfer moneys from one fund 
to another as the authorities saw fit to do. With 
this in mind it is well that someone ask: where teas 
this money come from with which this bonded in- 
debtedness has been reduced? 

We have looked for some time about how much 
the state is spending on repairing and maintaining 
our highway system. We have failed to find any. 
It would be well to know how much is being taken 
In by the state In gas tax, car licenses and federal 
contributions, and then compare this total with the 
sum expended for repair and maintenance. 

We have a pretty definite "hunch" that some 
of the money that should go toward our highway 
program Is being diverted into the state's general 
fund and is being used to reduce the bonded indebt- 

Now, is that improving matters, financially as 
well as otherwise, in our state? Are we going to 
reduce our state's indebtedness and then find that 
our highways have "gone to the dogs" and that 
soon we will be left in the mud? 

It is good campaign material for Stassen to be able 
to say that he is a financial wizard in reducing the 
state's Indebtedness but It Isn't so good for the rest 
of us to find ourselves stuck in the mud with a 
badly maintained road system. 

Trespassing at the Capitol 

(By Special Correspondents*. US- 


Of course, it may all be coincidental, but the 
American appeasers— Wheeler, Nye, Clark, Shipstead, 
Lindbergh, et al— always succeed in doing the very 
things that Adolph Hitler would have them do, and 
at the right time. 

Coinciding with Hitler's offensive in the East, 
these appeasers have started their most vigorous 
drive for a "negotiated peace"— meaning a peace on 
the Nazi dictator's terms, much as they attempt to 
deny it. The British appeasers, while not having the 
temerity to come out into the open, are said to 
be working with the American appeasers hand in 
glove, beneath the surface. It all sheds new light 
on the mission of No. 3 Nazi Rudolf Hess to Bri- 

The latest speech of Charles Lindbergh was a 
gem, and shows a new line. It is most significant 
that he found it necessary to talk about "Germany 
with all her faults," for the first time in his life 
admitting that the Nazis had faults. Also, he at- 
tempted to intimate that he believed in "our way 
of life," a "fact" that he had hitherto carefully con- 
cealed from his countrymen. Apparently, Lind- 
bergh's admiration for the "Nazi way of life," for 
the "waves of the future," as well as 'his lack of 
interest in all things democratic, was becoming em- 
barrassing to his America First Committee, sponsors. 

Chiselers Impede Defense Effort; 
Industrialists "Strike" For 
Bigger Profits 

'How much of a defense effort 
this country really making?" 
This column asked an OPM offi- 

"Well," he replied, "we are still 
to the honeymooning stage, and. 
from that point of view, we' are 
not doing such a bad job. But from 
the standpoint of what this coun- 
try's industrial plant Is capable of 
producing, we had better be slow 
about patting ourselves on the back. 
It is possible to treble our effort. 
The chiselers are giving us no end 
of trouble — chiselers who think on- 
ly. of how they can use the defense 
program to line their pockets." 

To the casual observer, the de- 
fense setup appears a maze of- con- 
fusion and red tape, which is large- 
ly true", but, it must be stated, it is 
functioning much better than ap- 
pears on the surface. However, 
there is no denying that there is a 
bitter conflict going on in the de- 
fense setup between two opposing 
philosophies. It is between the New 
Dealers, who are antagonistic to 
big profits by business in this em- 
ergency, and the business repre- 
sentatives who 'feel that the incen- 
tive for profits should not be dis- 

It must be recorded- that large 
segments of business do not under- 
stand the portents of a Hitler vic- 
tory, and are more concerned with 
profits than with anything else — 
this despite the patriotic pro- 
nounciamentos by the spokesmen 
of the National Association of 
Manufacturers that business, be- 
cause of an all-consuming patriotic 
ferver, is carrying on with great 
sacrifices. There have been a few 
cases of sacrifice, this official as- 
sured us, but these cases are the 
exception rather than the rule. 

A good example — one which may 
soon become a scandal of a piece 
with that of the Aluminum Com- 
pany of America — is afforded in the 
case of copper and zinc, the short- 
age' of which has created two bot- 
tlenecks impeding the defense" pro- 
gram. It is not generally known, 
but it is a fact nevertheless, that 
sufficient copper and zinc can be 
produced" to flood the market," as 
one OPM official privately admit- 
ted, "if only Leon Henderson would 
permit the price to go up." 

This is, in effect, a strike against 
Uncle Sam for higher profits. And 
yet, these same business groups 
who are "striking" for higher pro- 
fits are the first to condem the 
worker who wants nothing more 
than a decent living wage and that 
his employer obey, the laws of the 
land! If the people of this country 
ever lose patience with the big in- 
dustrialists and business leaders 
(they are not all in that class), 
these industrialists and business 
leaders will have only themselves 
to blame through their selfishness 

ler-appeaser bloc in Congress can- 
not be minimized. Their tactics now 
will be to lull us to sleep. But they 
will fail. There is sufficient evi- 
dence that the Administration Is 
not going to be deterred from its 
announced purpose of moving 
against the Nazi dictator in ever- 
increasing strength until the world 
is rid of this beast. 

Franklin Roosevelt and Winston 
Churchill are working as a team. 
They both know that Hitler's at- 
tempt to conquer Russia , is but a 
means to an end — and the end is 
the destruction of American and 
British civilizations and the oblit- 
eration of democracy from this 
earth. There are most reliable re- 
ports that Churchill consulted 
Roosevelt prior to his declaration 
that Britain will aid Russia to the 
limit In repelling the Nazi attack — 
and that they saw eye.ito eye. 

Storage Facilities Insufficient 

A rather serious situation for the 
farmers may develop in the wheat- 
growing sections of the country 
when the 1941 harvest begins to 
come in, due to lack of grain stor- 
age facilities, unless provisions are 
made at this time for construction 
of grain bins for storage of wheat 
on the farm. Galvanized steel, used 
In construction of grain bins, is a 
defense material under priority 
rule. ' 

The situation is reported to be 
particularly bad in the Northwest, 
with the biggest wheat crop in 
years in prospect. Unless storage 
facilities for this wheat is provided 
now, much of it may have to rot 
on the ground, it is said. 

OPM officials are studying the 
situation, with a view to increasing 
the allotment of galvanized steel 
for grain bin construction. The real 
trouble lies in the shortage of zinc, 
which Is used in making galvanized 
steel, rather than in the steel short- 
age itself.

unwittingly. Hamilton Fish has>

In the house to have all mail pou- 
ches disinfected. OPM wants con-

and Industrial purposes, do their

the Bureau of Agricultural Econo- 
mics of the Department of Agri- 
culture pertaining, to the eggt and 
poultry situation says that "the 
number of layers on farms in Jan- 
uary, 1942,'is expected to be from 

5 to 10 per cent larger tnan So 
January this year." It adds that 
"there were about 8 per cent more 
young chickens in fldcks of crop 
reporters than a year earlier." 

Words of Wisdom 

Moliere was once asked why it 
was that in some countries a king, 
was judged to be fit to govern when 
he was fourteen, but was not al- 
lowed to marry until he was eight- 

"Because," replied Moliere, "it is 
more difficult to look after a wife 
than a kingdom."

what the frontier meant to us— 
■unadulterated glamour. And ever 
since colonial days It has had the 
sariie moving appeal to the people 
who lived far from it, safe, yet a 
little bored, a little ashamed at 
the bourgeois routine of their set- 
tled lives. Even today a flickering 
vestigal memory of that emotion 
sends thousands of visitors to the

That was the dream. But, of course, 
we know the substance must have 
been different. And in our more 
thoughtful moods we regret that 
the fitle we know about the pro- 
digious Westward drive of our peo- 
ple is so overlaid with war-whoops 
and fringed buckskin. This was an 
important— perhaps, the most im- 
portant — phase in the devolpment 
of our civilization. To understand 
America today we should know the 
facts beneath the glittering fancy 
of tradition. Professor Dick has set 
himself the task of supplying this 
lack in our historical background, 
and he has done a .workmanlike 

job. Vanguards of the Frontier is 
a longT substantial piece of work 
based on examination of all exist-

about actual facts, about dally life. 
Its sub-title describes it accurately.

nesters— and finally, barbed wire 
settlers (dry or irrigation) who 
turned the Wild West into just an- 
other farm problem. It is all there. 
Professor Dick neither debunks 
nor glorifies. He sets down the facts 
as he has found them. Often they 
are not pretty facts. There is plen- 
ty of dirt and sweat and bad ^hls-

greed and bad faith, and always 
there is waste. . . a stupefying in-

that very reason the book is timely

Hitler's Attack On Stalin

OPM announces that R. C. Allen, 
ferrous minerals consultant in the 
Materials Branch, "has been gran- 
ted leave of absence." Another in- 
dication of the quiet reorganization 
going on in OPM. Not all of the

are convinced that the Nazis can 
clean up the Red army in a few 
weeks. If the Red army can keep 
in the field until fall, as some be- 
lieve it can, Hitler may be faced 
with the certainty of his defeat.

Isolationists and other opponents 
of the proposed St. Lawrence Wa- 
terway, now before Congress, make 
it a nolnt of their argument that 
the seaway from the Great Lakes 
could not be completed for three or 
four years, and that it is therefore 
wrong to call the project a pre- 
paredness enterprise. 

That would suggest that they 
consider preparedness against" for- 
eign aggression, such as the present 
Hitler menace, merely a temporary 
expedient. It happens that the per- 
iod set for the completion of the 
canal is just about the time It takes 
to build and equip a big warship— 
not necessarily the biggest warship, 
either. So the yards and ways on 
the lakes could have ready for ser- 
vice a formidable line of cruisers, 
tankers, etc., as soon as the rest 
of the two-ocean navy now under 
construction. I do not suppose there 
is anybody who thinks of the two- 
ocean navy as- a temporary expe- 
dient to meet this particular emer- 
gency. We certainly are not — even 
if the Nazi-Fascist-Jap campaign 
against democracy Is over in a com- 
paratively short time — going to re- 
peat that disastrous blunder of 1921 
— sinking - our mest modern war 
craft^ln pursuit of Idealistic dis- 
armament. * 

If it hadn't been for the disarma- 
ment conference we would not to- 
day be feverishly rushing precau- 
tions against the possibility of a 
simultaneous war in the Pacific and 
the Atlantic. Perhaps the Japan- 
ese threat, now so integral a part 
of the Teutonic campaign for 'world 
domination, would never have ari- 

This, however, is no time for

then that we had settled forever 
the peril of a conquerer's march, 
and that thenceforth the world was 
to be a family of peaceful nations, 
with all controversies f resolved at

ocracies may blunder, they are not

twice. Never again is America goinj

shadowing necessities of national 

"Although I do not wish to cause 
unnecessary alarm," Commissioner 
Hoffmann said, T believe our peo- 
ple should be forwarned, in all 
frankness, that some projects in 
Minnesota's highway construction 
program may have to give way in 
behalf of the national defense pro- 
gram of strategic highway improve- 

"The provisions of the National 
Defense Highway Act as passed by 
the Senate on June 16, the testi- 
mony of defense authorities before 
the Senate Roads committee, cur- 
rent regulations of the U. S. Publfc 
Roads Administration, and private 
advices from Washington, all indi- 
cate that undetermined amounts of 
state highway funds, which the 
Highway Department has consider- 
ed programmed for definite pro- 
jects, may have to be diverted to 
more vital improvements on some 
1,800 miles of our trunk routes 
which have been designated as stra- 
tegic defense roads. The extent to 
which the defense, program will 
make inroads upon our construc- 
tion program, naturally will be de- 
pendent unon what proportion of 
the $250,000,000 is applied to'access 
roads on which the federal govern- 
ment pays the entire cost. 

What effect Is the Russo-Ger- 
man conflict going to have on this 
country's defense effort? That Is a 
question that many here are ask- 

The fascist minded gentry, both 
in an out of Congress, already 
have become more bold in their 
opposition to the Administration's 
foreign policy. The theme song of 
"Why spill American blood and 
American treasure to save the Bri- 
tish Empire?" has been changed to, 
"Why spill American blood and 
American treasure to save Europe 
from Communism?" — both specious 
arguments, since nobody proposes 
spilling American blood or Ameri- 
can treasure for any other purpose 
than the safety and security' of 
this country. 

By posing as "enemies of Com- 
munism," Fascists will now feel 
that is is safer for them to come 
out into the open — and there are 
more powerful people In positions 
of great importance in industry 
who prefer Fascism to democracy 
than many of us suppose! The 
sincere isolationists, who hate Hit- 
ler and Naziism about as much as 
anybody else, will find new "con- 
verts" In whose company they will 
feel quite 111 at ease. Nazi propa- 
gandists will loose a flood of new 
propaganda telling us to keep 
hands off and let Hitler and his 
erstwhile partner, Stalin, kill each 
other off, so that we will .relax in 
our efforts to bring about the de- 
struction of the Nazi regime. 

The new support that the Ad- 
ministration's program will receive 
from the Communists in this coun- 
try, who have shown that they are 
the best mental somersaultlsts on 
earth, may prove somewhat embar- 
rassing, but it will have its com- 
pensations. The President no longer 
will be called a renegade and a 
warmonger and a deserter of labor 
by a group who are quite adept 
at calling people names. The Na- 
tional Defense Mediation Board, 
more strongly pro-labor than any 
government agency of its kind ever 
set up, will no longer be dubbed a 
strike-breaking agency. Nuisance 
organizations like the American 
Peace Mobilization will be liquida- 
ted from within— demobilised. And 
there is no danger that strikes will 
be called in defense industries for 
any other purpose than to protect 
labor and advance its cause. Also, 
the fight against the anti-labor 
bloc in Congress will now be made 
more effective - and the danger, 
which still exists, of passing re- 
strictive labor legislation will be 
considerably lessened. 

But the dangers to the defense 
program and the effort to /-defeat 
Hitler through increased strength 
of such organizations as the Amer- 
ican First Committee and the Hit-

was during the last half of May, to be caught unready in a world 
subject to such spasms of barbar- 
ism as are now convulsing it. 
Can We Afford To Gamble? 
Nobody knows whether this is to 
be one of the long wars. If it turns 
out that way, a naval ship-building 
base thousands of_miles away from 
possible bombardment, either by 
sea or by air, would be invaluable. 
We believe that England will be 
able to withstand her enemies, and 
that the British fleet will continue 
to be one bulwark for t h is country 
against trans-Atlantic attack. But 
in the existing situation, do we dare 
take any chances? Our seas h ore 
yards are crowded; the keel of one 
ship is' laid as soon as one on th: 
ways slides into the water. . The 
Lakes bases would relieve that 
pressure. We would not have to 
wait for the -completion of the ca- 
nal to begin construction of the 
vessels, for the plants are already 
there. In other words, the Lake- 
built craft would be ready as soon 
as many of those to be built on the 

Suppose the immediate emergen- 
cy Is over next year, or the year 
after? A thousand ships have been 
sunk already in this war and will 

according to a Department of La- 
bor Survey in 18- principal cities. 
The rise in the last half of May- 
was 03 per cent, while during the 
first half of June it was 1.6 per 
cent, the survey shows. Number of 
applicants who qualified as avia- 
tion cadets during the week end- 
ing June 21 was the greatest in 
any single week in the history of 
the Army Air Corps, the number 
being 786. Former record week was 
555. Hitler's invasion of Soviet Rus- 
sia is interpreted here in certain 
informed sources as meaning that 
the Hess flight to Scotland has de- 
finitely ended in failure. The No. 3 
Nazi, it Is contended, carried peace 
offers to Britain as the prelude 
to an attack on Russia. Rep. Ham- 
ilton Fish, New York, may not be 
a Nazi sympathizer, nor a Nazi 
"front" or dupe, but, by some 
strange coincidence, he can always 
be depended upon to give publicity 
to the Nazi "line." He lost no time 
in announcing that line when, the 
day after Hitler invaded Russia, he 
said In the House: "American mo- 
thers will not care to; send their 
sons to Soviet Russia to fight and 
die for Communism." Regardless of 

have to be replaced to meet the ne- 
cessities ' of world commerce and 
naval demands when peace finally 
comes. Does America intend that 
this huge industry should go In a 
large measure to competing Tiations 
at a time when the release of man- 
power from the armies is going to 
confront every country with the 
problem of taking care of vast un- 
employment problems? The frantic 
call for cargo ships is part of the 
reason for the congestion of the 
seashore plants; the Imperative 
priority of the naval program ac- 
counts for the rest of it. 

Quite outside of the need as a 
defense measure for a deep water- 
way from the Lakes to the ocean, 
are the ordinary peace-time advan- 
tages. The production of a huge 
volume of electrical power and the 
saving in freight rates for the Wes- 
tern farmers are conspicuous ex- 
amples of the patent values. It is 
estimated that the saving to the 
farmer alone will equal the total. 
cost of canal construction within 
three years. 

Politics Gets Into The Picture 
There is logical basis for the op- 
position of the power monopolies; 
and the railroads can make out a 
case, though the example of then 
increased business showed the fal- 
laciousness of their argument when 
it was brought against the Pana r 
ma Canal 'construction. (Incidental- 
ly, the new (Pannama locks, will not 
be ready, either, until 1945.) The 
Eastern ^seaboard cities do not want 
to lose the. business of transship- 
ping from the railroads to the car- 
go boats, but again the statisticians. 
tell us this will be more than made 
up by the increased business that 
will follow the industrial devolep- 
ment and general growth of the 
sparsely populated Northwest. Those 
objections, valid or not, are under- 
standable. It is different from the 
political opposition to President 
Roosevelt which coincides with the 
congressional proceedings. Let me 
quote a typical paragraph from an 
ex-Democrat who has assailed 
Roosevelt ever since the Hoover 
period. Under the heading "His 
Personal Fight," he treats the St. . 
Lawrence waterway as merely a pet _ 
project of Roosevelt's. "This," writes 
Frank Kent, "is one of his oldest 
and most cherished (ideas). He was 
for it twenty years ago when he was 
in the New York Senate. He has 
been for it ever since, and its re- 
jection five iears ago by the Sen- 
ate did not diminish his eagerness." 
That is true. It is also true that 
every Governor of 1 New York during 
the same period declared for the 
'waterway, and that every President 
of the United States since Theo- 
dore Roosevelt recommended its 

A majority of the Senate voted 
for it in 1934, but it fell short of 
the two-thirds majority requisite 
for the validation of a treaty. Act- 
ually, more than two-thirds of the 
Senate Democrats voted for ratifi- 
cation and- approximately two- 
thirds of the Republicans voted 
against.. The pending measure, 
however, not being a treaty, re- 
quires only a majority vote of the 
two houses. So if the Senate votes 
this time as it did then, and the 
House divides in the same propor- 
tion, we will have the great water- 
way and — come peace or come war 
— we will be glad we've got it.

the nowerful story of Wolf Larsen, 
the epitome of all the fighting, kil-

the sea fleet. Those who sailed with 
him on "The Ghost" seldom lived 
to relate their experiences. Onto 
this hell-ship come a girl and a 
man, rescued from the wreck of a 
San Francisco ferry boat. The man 
is put to work as a cabin boy; the 
girl, desperately 111, Is indifferently 
cared for by the ship's drunken 
doctor. She wins the sympathy of 
one of the ship's sailors, and they 
plan to be married if they can ever 
escape from the ship. 

The young man working as ca-

blindness. The girl, her sailor, and 
two others on board decide to risk 
everything in an attempt to escape

Grade No. 2 
Grade No. 3 

South St. Paul, Minn., July 8, 
1941: A sharply higher trend early 
this week in the hog division sent 
prices generally 25c higher. All 
weights and classes of slaughter 
hogs shared in the upturn. Another 
new high since October izZ7, ac- 
cording to the Federal-State Mar- 
ket News Service, was established 
at S10.75, paid freely for Good and 
Choice ISO to 240 lb. barrows and 
gilts. Bulk of the Good and Choice 
160 to 270 lb. hogs moved Tuesday 
at S10.GO to $10.75, with similar 
grades 270 to 300 lb. offerings mak- 
ing $10.50 to $10.65, and weights 
from 300 to 400 lbs. getting $10,25 
to $10.60. Good sows under 450 lbs. 
sold mainly at $10.00, with scat- 
tering heavier weights at $9-90 and 
$9.95. Feeder nigs were steady, tlie 
bulk clearing at $10.75 to $11.00. 

Slaughter steers scaling 1100 lbs. 
down sold dependably, prices gen- 
erally holding steady, instances on 
yearlings were stronger, but on the 
other hand, weights above 1100 lbs. 
were unevenly weak to 25c lower. 
Other slaughter classes held mostly 
steady. Stockers and feeders were 
in light supply and mostly steady. 
Vealers ranged steady, to 50c lower. 
A load of Choice 806 lb... .mixed 
steers and heifers set the week's 
top at $1156, andthere were Choice 
1101 lb. and 1290 lb. steers at $11.00. 
Bulk Medium to Good steers 
brought $9^5 to $1055 with Medium 
grassers to killers at $9.00. Choice 
heifers sold at $10.50^'to $10.75. Good 
stock steers brought $1055. 

Scattered instances of 10 to 25c 
higher money have been recordtd 
on spring lambs, but it was largely 
a steady affair for bulk of the crop 
and also for slaughter yearlings and 
sheep following the holiday period. 
Eastern dressed lamb centers were 
a shade stronger today, marking the 
first -upward turn in around ten 
days. Washington spring lambs.were 
marketed freely, the two-day ar- 
rival posting approximately 40 car 
loads, these chiefly of Good to 
Choice grade. Outside orders pro- 
vided for peak money of $11.60, paid 
for 87 lb. averages. Minor sorts 
were taken at $10.00. Best native 
springers secured $1155, yearling 
at $8.75 and slaughter ewes stopped 
at $4.50.

Independent Ball Team Wins Two 
Games Over Holiday Week End 

Two Victories Make Five Consecu- 
tive Wins For Local 

Going on a scoring rampage, the 
local independent baseball team 
chalked up, consecutive victories 
number 4 and 5 over the Fourth 
of July holiday. The locals spoiled 
the Grygla Independence Day cele- 
bration to a certain extent by de- 
feating the Grygla club 9 to 3. 
Holiday win No. 2 came last Sun- 
day when the Thief River nine 
knocked off the Red Lake Falls 
baseballers by a 6 to 1 count. 

In defeating Grygla, the locals 
continued blasting the ball with lit- 
' "tie mercy. This has been the case 
in the past several games. Stan 
Cockrell smashed "wilt a triple and 
single to lead Thief River batters. 
Pitcher Hallamack, Bob DuChamp, 
and Johnny Jaranson were all on 
CockreU's heels in the hitting de- 
partment with a double and single 
each. A Sandland, on the receiving 
end of the Grygla battery, got a 
pair of singles to lead his team at 
the plate. 

Although hitting one batter, Hal- 
lamack, -versatile Thief River hurl- 
er, was in good form, Twelve of the 
34 men to face Hallamack took the 
strikeout route to the dougout. Only 
5 hits were given up by the Thief 
River hurler. No walks were issued. 
Grygla imported Woody Almquist 
from St. Hilaire to handle the hurl- 
ing chores. He fanned 11, walked 
7, and allowed 12 hits to fall far 
behind Hallamack's record. 

Sunday's game agai ns t Red Lake 
Palls proved to be a repitition of 
last week's game when the locals 
defeated the Lakers 11-1, the only 
difference being in the score which 
was 6 to 1. Action started in the 
bottom of the second inning when 
Hallamack's double pushed Jaran- 
son across the plate. In the fourth 
inning Jaranson singled, Hallamack 
walked, and J. DuChamp plunked 
one in front of the plate. Jorgen- 
son. Laker catcher, attempted to 
catch Jaranson off third after 
fielding the ball, but his peg was 
. wild and Jaranson came, in stand- 
ing up. Three more runs were ad- 
ded by Thief River in the fifth and 
another in the sixth. Red Lake 
Falls' lone run came in the first 
half of the seventh when Don Ol- 
son muffed a fly ball. 

Bromberg and Hallamack paced 
the Thief River batters, while Jor- 
genson stood out for the losers at 
the plate. 

Tiredness showed on Hallamack, 
who allowed 5 hits, '1 run and a 
walk. He fanned 3. Kelley and 
Kiefenheim combined to fan 6, 
walk 2 and allow 6 hits.

Kiewel's 12; Viking 4 

In a game played at the Fair- 
grounds last Wednesday night Kie- 
wel's moved into third place iii the 
league standings by defeating Vi- 
king 12 to 3. Viking appeared on 
the field with only a 7-man team, 
but managed to keep the game in- 
teresting during the first several 
innings. Kiewel's outfit banged out 
a total of 6 hits while the Viking 
crew was held to 3 -hits. 

Land O'Lakes 14; Viking 8 

Viking was in town again Mon- 
day night of this week for a game 
with Land O'Lakes, which the latter 
won by a 14 to 8 count. Land O'- 
Lakes got credit for 12 hits while 
the visitors were chalking up 11, 
but the Lakes ten took advantage 
of Viking errors to make the dif- 
ference in the final score,. "Ham" 
Myhrer, on the hill for the win- 
ners, allowed 5 bases on balls and 
fanned 12 Viking batsmen. The 
win pushed Land O'Lakes into a 
tie with Hartz for first place in the 
league standings. 

Kiewel's 9; CCC 3 

The CCC boys finally got around 
to play a ball game Tuesday of 
this week and were set down -by 
Kiewel's 9-3. The 3-C's outfit were 
out in front 2 to 1 in the second 
inning and had things all tied up 
going into the fifth inning, but it 
was all Kiewel from here on in. 
The local bunch gathered 3 runs 
in the fifth, another in the sixth 
and two more in the seventh to 
make the lop-sided score. Gordy 
Kaushaugen allowed a measly three 
hits and' struck out 9 batters. 

Legion Juniors Win 
First Game This Year 

Thief River -Falls American Le- 
gion Junior baseball team chalked 
up its initial win of the season at 
Warren last Wednesday, beating 
Warren Juniors by a 3 u> 1 score. 
Misfortune, errors, and the like -de 
serted the local baseballers for a 
change. In their stead was substi- 
tuted excellent fielding and top- 
notch hitting. 

Scoring started in the first half 
of the opening inning when Homer 
Matheson got on the bags with a 
single, and was batted in by Don 
Berg. Two more runs came across 
the plate for Thief River in the 
second inning when Matheson dou- 
bled and Baker, Plehcner and Berg 
singled in succession. Warren's lone 
run came in the last half of the 
seventh when Paulson dropped Al- 
len's long fly. Allen scored on E. 
Erickson's single. 

Matheson led the Thief River 
batsmen with a double and single 
in three trips to the plate. Don 
Berg and Bob Baker bagged two- 
singles each, E. Erickson,;F. Erlck- 
son, and Allen topped the War- 
renltes with a single each. 

"Soup" Campbell worked effec- 
tively for the Thief River nine, 
allowing a. measly 3 hits, issuing 
five walks and fanning 5. No one 
got a hit off Campbell until the 
6th inning. P. Erickson, doing the 
tossing for Warren, had better con- 
trol in striking out 6 and permit- 
ting no gift bases, but allowed nine

By Doc Elslad 

Something new in the line of 
softball teams appeared on the field 
at the Fairgrounds one night last 
week. Viking was playing Kiewel's 
ten in a regular dlamondball league 
game. When the visitors took the 
field, there was a noticeable ab- 
sence of players in the outfield. In 
fact, there weren't any players cov- 
ering the pasture. . Roving short, 
usually a full-time position on any 
softball team, was filled by a man 
who paid frequent visits to the 
outfield to pick up a stray fry ball 
or hot grounder that got through 
the infield. Now I know why that 
song "Little Man You've Had A 
Busy Day" was written. Minus men 
or not. Viking played a dandy ball 
game and kept the score close until 
the last strike was called. 

At Long Last 

Sunday's crowd at the Red Lake 
Falls-Thief River game played at 
the Fairgrounds .set a record for 
this year. It was encouraging to 
see something substituted for the 
bareness that usually Is in evidence 
in the grandstand during baseball 
games. It wasn't a stupendous 
crowd so far as size,, and it didn't 
break any records, but baseball of- 
ficials were happy over the whole 
thing. Maybe baseball is coming 
back, and why not? Certainly it is 
a game to be enjoyed by all sports- 
loving Americans. 

More About Baseball 

The town baseball team is riding 
along on the crest of. a 5-game win- 
ning streak, including double 'wins 
over Red Lake Falls and Warren 
and a single victory over Grygla. 
Now that alone is something* to 
brag- about. But what about the 
rumored undefeated status? Look- 
ing back to the beginning of the 
season, we see where Plummer beat 
the locals twice. Former manager 
Dostal refers to those contests as 
practice games. But what of it? 
Five games won and none lost 
m a k e an excellent record. Five 
games won and two games lost is 
still pretty good. All games won 
were rung up in the win column as 
the result of two important base- 
ball tactics, abilities, or what have 

you. A lot has been said in regard 
to the hitting of the club. Not too 
much credit can be given to the 
batsmen for all the extra base hits 
they have collected: They have giv- 
en about all the help Pitcher Bill 
Hallamack wants. Hallamack's re- 

cord is something to note also. All 
five victories are his against no 
defeats. They can say ■ all they 
want, but 111 take Hallamack's 
curve, change of pace, control, 
speed, etc.,' in place of a lot of 
pitchers I have watched in these 
and . other parts of the state. To 
fully appreciate the stuff that fol- 
lows Hallamack's windup, one must 
don an unpires outfit or get a pre- 
ferred seat in the home plate blea- 
cher section.- 

A Bouquet To Kelley 
He didn't win Sunday's ball game, 
nor did he last the full seven in-, 
nlngs of the' : abbreviated contest,' 
but Red Lake Falls' Pitcher Kelley 
was giving all he had. He took his 
turn Inning after . ■ inning, never 
complaining, inasmuch as tiredness 
on his part was very noticeable. 
That's love for baseball. Kelley had 
given his blood for his daughter's 
transfusion Saturday, the day be- 
fore the game. Now doesn't that 
warrant a bouquet? - 

Sports Chatter 

The big, game of the year comes 
here this coming Sunday. The lo- 
cals face Plummer at the Fair- 
grounds. It may be just an ordin- 
ary contest or it may be a grudge 
game, but in either case it'll be 
worth seeing. .... Last Sunday's 
crowd brought sweet memories back 
to Club Secretary Charle Dostal. He 
recalls the days when Jack Demp- 
ster managed the local " nine and 
crowds averaged around $40 a game. 
During Dempster's reign, the base- 
ball club likes to look "back at one 
game in particular. It was about 
three years ago when the local 
gang played the Kansas City Mon- 
archs. The gate: $120, and that 
ain't hay. . . . .Some of those mak-

a doctor would do. .We ask all kinds 
of questions and try to get a case

is urged to try a bowlful of that, 
and this, and to ask questions, 
"Often they have been cigarette 
smokers and they fail to.reallze that 
pipe has four times more Ire 
volume," he said. "We explain this 
and suggest slower, more deliberate 
puffs." At present there is a trend 
toward aromatlcs. Ross can serve

ten to Mr. Radcliffe, secretary of 
the International "War Veterans 
Alliance of Winnipeg who delivered 
the main address of the day. He 
stressed the idea that the United

the latter with a three to nine 
score. Saturday's game was played 
between Grygla and Middle River

The garden is -just coming thru 
with dozens of good things for the 
family table. Gardens reach their 
peak during midsummer months. 
But pastures don't. Bluegrass stops 
growing almost ■ entirely. Other 
grasses and legumes slow down. A 
good job for early July is to give 
the pasture for. the dairy herd a 
good looking over. Can the cows 
pick 100 to 150 pounds of grass a 
day in eight hours? If the pasture 
can't furnish the feed, other means 
should be found — supplementary 
grazing^ good hay, grain.

Cards To Be Issued 

(Continued from Front Page! 

If measured acreage of wneat 
seeded is in excess of 15 acres 
and the acreage allotment, excess 
acres must be taken care of before 
a marketing card can be issued. 

Mr. Anderson points out the fol- 
lowing ways the excess wheat may

1 pavment in cash of 49 cents a 
bushel "for the excess to the county 
f^A.\ treasurer and receive a mar- 
keting card permitting sale of all 

2. Denosit with the county treas- 
u-er 49" cents a bushel on the ex- 
cess to be held in escrow to Ule 
growers credit. The excess wheat 
under this Dlan must be stored on 
the farm and if it cannot be shown 
on demand, the money reverts to 
the United States treasury. 

3. Deliver the excess wheat to a 
bonded warehouse and secure ware- 
house receiDts for the surplus. The 
grower under this rule assumes all 
responsibility for storage charges. 
Receipts under this plan must b2 
deposited with the county AAA 

4 Posting a bond equal to 49 
cents a bushel for the ex:ess wheat 
with the countv AAA treasurer. The 
wheat may then be stored on the 
farm or" in a warehouse. 

5 Turn the excess wheat- over 
to the Department of Agriculture 
and receive a marketing card for 
allotted wheat. This wheat will be 
distributed bv the department to 
the Red Cross and like agencies. 

6. Haul the excess wheat to the 
elevator and sell it -with a 49 cent 
penalty. The county committee will 
then give the grower a marketing 
card to sell the remainder of his 
w T heat. 

Mr. Anderson explains excess 
wheat stored under bond or un»»r 
loan to the Commodity Credit Cor- 
poration may be disposed of in fol- 
lowing years by seeding under the

Gully Farmer Killed 

By Stacker Saturday 

Ernest Kolling, 44-year-old farm- 
er near Gully, was killed Saturday 
afternoon when he was struck on 
the head by a falling pole from a 
hay-stacking apparatus. 

Unable to directly handle the 
work on the farm because of asth- 
matic attacks, Kolling was instruct- 
ing two of his sons in the erection 
of a hay stacker when a third son, 
driving a team of horses nearby, 
lost control of the animals when" 
they became frightened and bolted 

6 Leave For Camp; 

New Drawing Planned 

Clair C. Larson of Hazel, Walter 
J Hoaas of Oklee, James E. Hoff- 
seth of this city, Alvin Fjeld of 
Goodridge, Raymon Appell of Rich- 
field, Idaho, and Roy Weflin of 
Rosewood formed the first July 
contingent of selective service in- 
ductees from Pennington county. 
Five of the men left Tuesday for 
training at Fort Snelling. 

A party honoring the draftees 
was held in the Pine Cave of the 
Palm Garden cafe prior to their 
departure. Raloh Luhman, repre- 
senting the Junior Chamber .of 
Commerce, had charge of the pro- 
gram. Alex Cloutier spoke in be- 
half of the American Legion and 
L. W. Rulien was the principal 
-peaker of the evening. 

Plans were made Monday by na- 
tional selective service officials for 
a new national draft lottery, pro- 
bably to be conducted .late this 
month, to determine the order in 
which the recently registered draft 
eligibles will be integrated into the , 
list of older registrants by local 

It was disclosed officially Sunday 
that, following the drawing, the 
new registrants' numbers will be 
filled into the present local lists 
according to the ratio of new names 
■ to old. For example, if a local 
board has 500 previously registered 
men on its list and 100 of the new 
21-year-olds registered, the num- 
ber of a new eUgible will be in- 
serted after every fifth name on 
trie list. Numbers drawn in,the*new. 
lottery will be preceded by an S. 
Therefore, S-l will be the sixth 
man on the list and S-2 the twelfth, 


By Charles Gustafson ' 

Vast Canada Is no longer the 
home of a complacent people. That 
British dominion on the north is 
solemnly at war. Soldiers, sailors, 
airmen from every corner of the 
Empire walk briskly along the wide 
clean streets of Winnipeg. Refu- 
gees from Scotland, England, and 
a number of other war-torn home-, 
lands walk sadly among the hos- 
pitable Canadians. Sad because of 
the ghastliness of the situation 
which 'exists in then- countries— 
I relieved to be free from bombing, 
fighting, and mass death, they re- 
present a tragic silhouette of Eur- 

In Winnipeg I talked with an 
evacuee from Scotland. He was a 
15-year old from Glasgow, sent to 
Canada in September, 1940. Three 
brothers are fighting in England. 
A sister is in Scotland, serving in 
a home defense group. He gave his 
name as Tom Leons, and accord- 
ing to "Scotty" there are 4,000 simi- 
lar refugees in Winnipeg and 12,000 
in the whole of Manitoba. He point- 
ed out several blue-clad sqldiers 
and told me that they were from 
England, brought to Canada for 
training. "They should be fighting," 
he said, "but they are too young." 
We walked along the street. My 
companion's face revealed nothing 
of what he was thinking. "Canada 
i is a fine country," "Scotty" said. "I 
1 hope I can go to the United States 
sometime." When I inquired about 
the much-publicized air raids, he 
stopped and spoke softly and quick- 
ly. "I was in seven," he said. Sens- 
ing my excitement and curiosity, 
he added rath er curtly : "YOU 
ABOUT THAT!" Then he was si- 
perhaps forcing unpleasant 

4-H Club Members Will 
Participate In Contests 
At Pennington Fair 

4-H Club members will partici- 
pate in judging and showmanship 
contests and will present demon- 
strations on project work at the 
Pennington County Fair, County 
Agent Palmer stated last week. 

All members showing livestock 
will take part in the showmanship 
contest after the placing of their 
class of livestock on Thursday, July 
31. In the judglrg contest the dairy 
club members will jud-re classes of 
, dM'-v animals c^d members enrol- 
led ' in livestock ar * d P°" ltr >" win 
I judge classes of beef, dairy, pig, 
! celt and ?heep. Judsin- practices 
for -II intcrc-^d clue members will 
be arranged for Monday evening 
preceeding the fair. 

The demonstrations in all home 
economic and agricultural projects 
will be given in the 4-H club build- 
ing on Friday, August 1. The indi- 
! yidual silent bread demonstrations 
will be given at nine o'clock. The 
individual oral demonstrations in 
cake, family meal, canning, room 
furnishing will follow. The team 
oral demonstrations in clothing, 
bread, canning, dairy foods, and the 
agricultural team demonstrations 
will be given in the afternoon ol 
the same day. 

From these "contests at the coun- 
ty fair, judging teams, one indi- 
vidual bread demonstrator, one 
home economics "individual demon- 
strator, one home economics team, 
and one agricultural demonstration 
will be selected to- participate in

Patronize our advertisers 

memories from his mind. There our 
conversation dropped. "Scotty" left 
me with, "Cheerio, Bud." 

The people of . Canada are as 
hospitable as any people on earth, 
I believe. At least that is the way 
they seem to Americans. Perhaps 
it is because the Canadians are 
told explicitly to be kind and po- 
lite to everyone from the United 
States. From several Winnipeg ci- 
tizens I learned that this is an 
actual fact. They realize that our 
funds are sustaining their struggle. 
No matter what a Yankee does in 
their country, it is their duty to do 
whatever they can to help the 
American enjoy himself there: But 
to us their hospitality seemed to 
come directly from the individuals. 
They were genekous and talkative, 
.vith open hear£* and minds. 

In a conversation with. a Lon- 
doner, I could not reach a decision 
as to whether he was speaking di- 
rectly for himself or whether his 
talk was careliilly planned in ad- 
vance. His traveling had ?:een ex- 
tensive — New ^Zealand, Australia, 
England, and other parts qf the 
British Empire and the United 
States. He seemed enthusiastic in 
his .opinion that an organization 
such as an American high school 
band parading in England and ad- 
vertising boldly the fact that they 
were Americans," could produce a 
beneficial effect upon the Allies be- 
yond all • calculation. Money for 
such. an expedition could be secured 
through collections in the United 
States and Canada. "Marching in 
Europe", he said, "Is so much more 
formal and stiff and foreboding." 
In America there is no evidence in 
the marching that each partici- 
pant is expecting to die on a bat- 
tlefield, he said. There are slightly 
smiling faces and bodies that move 
forward with a defiance which sug- 
gests,- somewhat camouflaged, that 
yielding is unspeakable. Leaning, 
closer, the Londoner whispered, as 
other Britishers have whispered, "If 
I weren't . English, I would rather 
be an American than anything else" 
—bold evidence that Great Britain 
Is using every available method to 
secure forever the cooperation of 
the United States. 

I spoke with Ralph Franklin, a 
sailor in the British navy. "What 
do the English- people think the 

United States must do in order to 
help the democracies win this war?" 
I questioned. It was' an interroga- 
tion which I was earger to ask, 
and for which I thought every Bri- 
tish ■ subject had a prepared an- 
swer. I was somewhat amazed by 
his definite reply. 

"We don't want you to fight with 
us," he said. "If you do, the pre- 
sent confusion can only be extend- 
ed. We have men. We want you to 
do exactly as you are doing now — 
supply us with food and materials 
with which we may carry on." 
Then he added in a quality ap- 
proaching a monotone, pdrhsips re- 
assuring himself for the hundredth 
time that day, ?'Tell the people in 
the United States that we :can't 
lose. If It takes 100 years, we shall 
win this war!" 

Another sailor stopped me when 
he had learned that I was an 
American. "I salute the United 
States," he said.. And the represen- 
tative of the British navy saluted, 
very much in earnest. An Austral- 
ian- told me that I was the first 
American he had ever seen. He 
hoped to be able to come to the 
United States some day, although to 
him Austrailia -. : ls..the best place in 
the world." The ^speech of the Aus- 
tralians was the most difficult to 
understand of all the dominions re- 
presented. The soldiers from New 
Zealand seemed to be the least 
talkative. They, would ask, "Are you 
having a fine time?" And from 
there on they appeared to have no 
desire for a lengthy conversation. 

A Canadian Scotchman startled 
me bv saying, "I'm sick and tired 
of the country. If I had a chance I 
would live in the United States." He 
believed that British training is 
more rigid than the. American 
training. On other occasions I 
found many who disagreed, saying 
that Canada should have conscrip- 
tion similar to that in the United 
States. "It's an excellent system," 
they said. British forces are entire- 
ly voluntary except for home de- 
fense drafting. 

Not until I was on my way home 
did I realize that not once had I 
heard Hitler mentioned in Canada, 
except, of course,* in the newspa- 
pers. I left with the impression that 
there, truly, was a loyal dominion, 
developing and training men from 
everywhere in the Empire— a coun- 
try which will surely perish rather 
than surrender to a fate far worse.

Telephone Girl Sorves 
Ticklish Predicament 

The heroism and fortitude of 
telephone girls has long been 
known but here's a story about one 
who could also think fast in an 
emergency. Working alone on the 
late night shift and sweltering one 
warm night last week, a Benson 
operator took off her dress, plug- 
ging in calls while clad only in 
petticoat attire. A breeze sprung up 
and she got up from her post to 
close a door down the hallway. As 
she did so, the door to the office 
slammed shut and . locked leaving 
her on the outside away from her 
numbers, minus her dress, and 
in somewhat of a dither. After pon- 
dering a moment she piled books 
up to a .oolnt where she, being a 
diminutive person, was able to 
crawl through a small door into 
the office. 

Many a man has made a mon- 
key out or himself by reaching for 
the wrong limb. .;■.-,

Fight On Mustard Weed 
Begun In Roseau County 

Experiments have been started in 
Roseau county to ccmbat the mus- 
tard weed invasion. The Roseau 
county agent, M. C. Wangsness, 
stated that' mustard has increased 
greatly the oast four years, with 
flax fields being the hardest hit. 
A series " of spraying demonstra- 
tions have been planned by the 
county agent. The spray contains 
a chemical which kills the rough 
leafy plants such as mustard but 
does not injure the flax or small 
grain plants which have smooth 
waxy leaves. The demonstrations 
are in 10-foot stretches, 50 to 60 
feet aoart, and have been tried on 
both flax and oat crops. A check 
on the effects on yields will be de- 
termined by harvesting samples of 
grain from treated and untreated" 

City Makes Final

$225,000 paving bonds issued Aug. 
1, 1921, was retired, relieving this 
city of a heavy financial burden. 

Interest at six per cent paid out 
during this twenty-year period on 
the bonds aggregated $144,660, City 
Clerk P. G. Pederson revealed. The 
bonds were issued for the construc- 
tion of 18 blocks of bitulithic pav-

The 40th annual Pennington 
County Fair, which opens Wednes- 
day, July 30, for a four-day event, 
gives promise of again being North- 
western Minnesota's biggest exhi- 
bition. This became more assured 
this week when the implement deal- 
ers here made plans for a large 
exhibit, and the fair board ar- 
ranged for special low rates on the 
Midway for children for two days 
during the event. The exhibits and 
program are expected to be equal 
to or better than formerly. 
- In, the evening on Wednesday, 
registration day, the WLS Barn 
Dance group from Chicago will 
stage something new for Penning- 
ton county fairs — a quiz program 
with, a total of $100 in cash to be 
distributed for correct answers to 
intelligence test questions. The 
WLS group will - present the gay 
quiz show and" radio jamboree only 
one night, Wednesday. 

Local stores will be closed in the 
afternoon on Thursday, Thief Riv- 
er Palls Day at the fair, so that 
merchants here may attend the 
performance of the Barker Bros. 
Hodeo and Circus which will be 
staged before the grandstand on 
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday af-

Arrangements for the collection 7 
of all possible scrap aluminum from 
homes and business places here and 
in other communities throughout 
the county are being completed 
under direction of Gustav Schil- 
bred who has been appointed chair- 
man of the Civilian Defense Coun- 
cil for this county. 

. The collection of scrap alu min u m 
is the first of many important ac- 
tivities to be undertaken by the lo- 
cal civilian defense councils now 
being set up throughout the state. 
Dates set for the campaign are 
from July 21 to July 29. 

Instructions and suggestions for 
the campaign, just received from 
Ernest L. Olrich, state defense co- 
ordinator, stress the urgent need 
of the government for aluminum 
and ask for the cooperation of all 
citizens in assembling as much of 
this vital- defense material as -pos- 

- "The nation needs aluminnm for 
airplanes and other items in its 
defense program more. rapidly than 
existing facilities can produce It,' - 
Mr. Olrich pointed out. "The peo- 
ple can help very much in t h is 
emergency by donating all the alu- 
minum ware they can spare from 
their homes or business places 
without being replaced. If a house- 
wife has other types of utensils she 
can use in -place of her aluminum 
ware, she should donate all the 
aluminum ware she can spare, but 
she should not give away anything 
that would require her to purchase 
new utensils." 

House-to-house campaigns are 
being organized in most counties,

Spring Wheat May Be 

Best Since 1928 U. S. 

Report States 

All Nearby Counties 
1 Indicate Good Stands 

Cool Weather And Plenty 

Moisture Contribute 

To Prospects 

With very favorable growing; 
weather prevailing lor the past two 
weeks or more grain crops here as 
well as all over the Northwest are 
the best they have been in" a dozen 
years. The very cool weather has 
permitted a heavy growth and the 
heads are filling out in excellent 
shape. Unless something unfore- 
seen happens in the next ten days 
the biggest wheat crop since 1928 
will be harvested. 

While the heavy rainfall during- 
the early part of June caused somd 
drowning to crops in this area, the 
rest is now In good condition. The 
stand of sweet clover, flax and 
other crops Is equally as good as 
that of wheat. However, it is, too 
early to predict the outcome of 
these later crops. 

A survey published by the Grand 
Forks Herald of Wednesday gives 
the following information in re* 
gard to counties in this area: 

Carl R. Anderson, AAA chair- 
man for Pennington county, repor- 
ted crops generally are 10 per cent 
better than a year ago - and 5 per 
cert better than normal.* 

Wheat that last year went about 
13 bushels to the acre is expected: 
to run above 14 bushels this year. 
One third of the 700,000 storage 
space in the county is available at 
present for the 1941 crop, but more 
space will be available when the 
grain starts moving. 

There has been slight wind dam- 
age, no rust and—two per cent 
damage\from' crops' lodging.

Entered as Second Class matter April 27th, 1932, at

February 21, 1935, under Act of Congress of Marcn

The protest raised by some Oklahoma farmers 
over the penalty inflicted on those overseeding thetr 
truota under the AAA program has two sides to it. 
It is so seldom farmers raise a howl about factors 
that effect them that the" innocent bystander is us- 
ually favorable to these farm "protesters." 

The organized group has become known as the 
National Agricultural Producers association and in- 
tends to carry its fight on to a national scale. How- 
ever, the department of agriculture, under Claude 
Wickard, secretary, has taken steps to give the far- 
mers some way to work out of their difficulty. The 
problem was -hat these farmers had produced too 
much wheat and so were to take a 49-cent penalty 
on the excess portion of the crop. 

The argument simmers down to the question: 
can a farmer eat his cake and still have it? The 
government has set a price on wheat by giving the, 
farmers under the AAA program a loan value per 
bushel. If the government didn't have some sort of 
control over the production of wheat it couldn't very 
■well set the loan price so high, especially in view 
of the big crop that is now being harvested. Under 
the present laws, this loan program is the only way 
in which the grain prices can be kept higher than 
what Uie supply and demand would set them. 

It is regrettable that we cannot raise all the 
grains our farmers are able to. But then again we 
have seen that if we raise a big crop and create

If Uncle Sam. therefore, allows some farmers to 
raise a crop far in excess of what he is supposed to, 
he is doing an injustice to those farmers who abide 
by the AAA program. All fanners who joined the 
AAA setup agreed by contract to abide by the rules 
-and regulations of a =M majority. A vote a month 
ago went 80 percent in favor of the program. While 
the exact penalty for excess crops was not stipulated 
the understanding was that those who wanted to at- 
tempt to cheat the rest would suffer for it. That 
determines whether one wants to agree with those

The primary purpose of the occupation of Iceland 
by American troops undoubtedly is to. make good the 
President's promise of "deliverying the goods" to 
Great Britain. But there is another purpose— and, a 
very important one — that this occupation will serve 
about which very little has been said, towit, it will 
enable the British to move additional naval forces 
into the Mediterranean should Darlan decide to use 
the French navy to help out his friend, Hitler. 

Washington for several weeks, it is said, has been 
receiving some rather disturbing reports that Darlan 
is getting his fleet ready to convoy Nazi troops to 
North Africa for an Axis assault this fall on Alex- 
andria and the Suez Canal. This is reported to be 
part of the Berlin-Vichy "collaboration" agreement. 
The French fleet, together with the Italian fleet, 
would give the Axis naval superiority in the Medi- 
terranean against present British naval forces. 

The American occupation of Iceland 'will probably 
frustrate that scheme. The United States Atlantic 
fleet in recent months has been quietly but substan- 
tially strengthened, for just such a task as keeping 
the sea lanes, both underseas and overseas as well 
as on the surface, free of hostile craft from North 
American and South American bases all the way to 
Iceland. This -will remove a tremendous load- from 
the British navy. 

9 Trespassing at the Capitol 

03y Special Correspondents', 


A tax relief organization in St. Paul made public 
a statement last Thursday whereby the claim was 
made that the commissioner of administration had 
brought about a saving of about two million dollars 
since this financial control system came about two 
years ago. The statement also claimed that a fourteen 
million dollars reduction in the state's bonded in- 
debtedness had been made. 

Some of this reduction has come about by the 
sale of the state's rural credit farms and reduction 
in funds that go out to the counties and school 
districts in the state. It is further proposed that 
'aid to' school districts be cut so that the indebtedness 
can be further reduced. 

While this statement is made another contrary 
release was given out to the public. That was a 
disclosure that while the state levies have been re- 
duced, the counties, townships and school districts 
over the state have had to raise their levies by half 
a million dollars. 

It is logical to expect that if state aid to counties 
and school districts are reduced that the local levies 
■will have to be raised- Gov. Stassen wants, to re- 
-duce the aids further so he can boast of further 
reduction in debts. 

It is here where the citizens in the rural com- 
munities will suffer if such a program is carried out 
in its fullness. It most naturally follows that if we 


It is strange what war does to the human mind. 
Thousands of men may die under a hail of shrapnel 
and hot lead; a whole city may be wiped out in a 
single raid— and such things are less horrifying than ■ 
a newspaper account of an automobile accident in 
which five or six people lose their lives.. That's what 
war does. It programs death' on such a broad scale 
that it no longer horrifies because it does not seem 

Last week the Washington Daily News proposed 
a program under which every motorist in the U.S.A. 
could co-operate in the conservation of motor fuel 
The Daily News suggested that motorists cut down 
their speed. Lower speeds would help a lot in con- 
serving gasoline for defense purposes, and the Ameri- 
can Automobile Association is authority for the 
statement that one fifth - of the motor gasoline sup- 
ply could be saved by avoiding high speeds and 
being less hasty on the gataway from stop signs 
; in the city. 

That all sounds fine. And it is very important 
that one fifth of the gasoline supply be conserved for 
national defense. But why not some thought to the 
saving of human lives by less speed? Why all the 
stress on saving a few gallons of gasoline? Auto 
deaths in 1941 are already 1,500 ahead of 1940. It 
is time that some energy be spent in conserving the 
lives of both motorists and pedestrians. 

But that's what war does to the average mind. 
It makes it think of saving gasoline when common 
sense should dictate that the important thing is the 
saving of human lives. That, after all, is national 
defense.— St. Paul Union Advocate. 

Big Landowners and Bankers 
Behind Rider Aimed at FSA 

There was something darn smelly 
about the rider that Sen. Radcliffe, 
Maryland, attached to the second 
deficiency appropriations bill, anc 
actually succeeded in putting over 
which provided that none of this 
money be paid employees of Farm 
Security Administration "appointed 
In accordance with civil service 
laws." About 18,000 employees ot 
this deoartment were to have been 
blanketed in under tne Raxnspeck 

Mil- , , .. 

The rider cannot be explained 

away by a mere desire on the part 
of southern senators and represen- 
tatives, who put it over, to preserve 
the patronage system in that de- 
partment. They had very little to 
say about patronage in that par- 
ticular spot. Behind it is seen an 
effort of the big landowners anc 
the bankers of the South to inter- 
fere with a government agency that 
has been doing altogether too much 
battling for the little fellow to suir. 
them— an agency that Is depriving 
them of a "graft" that they have 
enjoyed for years. 

These big landowners and bank- 
ers (it also is true of the big land- 
owners and bankers in other sec- 
tions of the country, to a more or 
less degree) don't like many things 
that FSA has been doing the past 
few years. They don't, 'for example 
like the FSA program to make 
cheap credit available to small far- 
mers to help them get going and 
the aid that they are giving these 
small farmers in farm management, 
which has put many of them on 
then- feet; they don't like the FSA 
program which aids tenant farm- 
ers in purchasing farms under 
long-term payment arrangements 
and at low interest rates; they 
don't like the farm resettlement 
program, and, in particular, they 
don't like the fact the FSA has 
been urging that the Triple-A poli- 
cy be changed so that the big fel- 
low gets less benefit from that pro- 
gram and the little fellow gets 
more benefhV-a campaign, inciden- 
tally, that is beginning to bear 
some fruit, .since Triple-A is start- 
ing to show some signs of going in 
that direction, and announcement, 
of changes in that policy are soon 
to be made. 

With the big landowners in the 
south used to keeping practi- 
cally all the farm benefit payments 
rather than dividing these pay- 
ments with their tenants on an 
equitable basis, and with the Ban- 
kers getting 12 per cent and more 
interest on their loans to strug- 
gling farmers, their antagonism to 
FSA is quite understandable. Un- 
der civil service, the present per- 

sonnel of FSA is secure in oflce; 
under the -patronage system, thert 
is at least a chance that they 
can be removed at some future

Voorhis Plan Favored 

There are a few people on the 
HtH who are paying some atten- 
tion to what; may happen, econo- 
mically and socially, when the 
present emergency is over — ano 
they seem to be making some head- 
way in pressing their views. 

Last week, a sub-committee of 
the House Labor Committee, head- 
ed by Rep. Voorhis, Calif., which 
would set up expert commissions 
now to studs' post-war unemploy- 
ment problems, and to devise pro- 
grams to meet these problems. Al- 
though, at this writing, the sub- 
committee had taken no action, 
this column is reliably informed 
that favorable action on these bills 
will 'be taken. 

The sub-committee is said to b= 
agreed on the wisdom of such a 
commission being set up at this 
time, the only question being de- 
bated Is whether the commission 
shall be a relatively small one, 
composed only of representatives of 
Congress and- the executive bran- 
ches, of government, or whether it 
shall also include representatives of 
economic groups, labor unions, 
management, agriculture, coopera- 
tives, etc. The majority of the com- 
mittee appear to favor including 
the latter on the commission. 

In view of the strong support the 
proposal has on the sub -committee, 
there appears to be little question 
that the House Labor committee 
will follow its' recommendations, 
and report them out favorably. 

A proposal, somewhat similar in 
nature, was made during the per- 
iod of the first World War by the 
A. F. of L. but the proposal wenc 
by the boards for lack ot Congres- 
sional support. But with the know- 
ledge of what happened after that 
jwar— mass unemployment and the 
worst depression in this country's 
history — It is now easier to interest

It is noted that those who are 
whooping it up the loudest for tha 
>Tazi3 in this country are doing i- 
in the name of democracy. The 
America First Committee is behind 
the move in Congress to compel 
recognition that a state of war ex- 
ists between Germany and Russia. 
They weren't so insistent to compel 
recognition that a state of war ex-

Roosevelt by the Synod of the 
"Protestant Reform Churches,'

done the closed shop. It's a good 
thing that very few ministers of 
any other denomination of faith 

interpret their religion in that way.

Dispelling the Fog 


A reader of this paper with an inqui r i ng turn of

has noted in connection with the periodical disclo-

systems deteriorate. 

The taxpayers associations of the Twin Cities are 
greatly concerned about tax reduction for the state 
-as a whole. - They are the wealthy property owners 
and the more Stassen can reduce the levies over the 
state it is more to their advantage. Tax reduction is 
OK if we don't cripple ourselves in any manner, but 
usually such is good for the rich ones and bad for 
the poor ones. 


A rather peculiar situation has arisen regarding 
the plea of Jean Sebelius, the great Finnish corn-

Ernest T. Weir of National Steel, with $345,000, and

long been known for their monopoly and price-fixing 
methods. They have also been notorious for their 
unenlightened labor policies and their ruthless war-

raid the ipocketbooks of the consumers and the pay 
envelopes of the workers so they may have more for

Wage-Hour Kicks Back Million 

There is an explanation given for 
it, but it doesn't make sense for 
the Wage-Hour Division to be re- 
turning nearly one million dollars 
to the Treasury of July 1, while 
admitting that it hasn't got enough 
inspectors to do a good inspection 
job looking after current complaints, 
to say nothing of the backlog of 
complaints that have accumulated 
since the Wage-Hour law went into 

A few weeks ago, Congress cut 
the Division's budget one-fifth, and, 
as a result, some 83 new inspectors 
were to have been added to thu 
force of 980 for the fiscal year

Complaints have been made by 
labor people that, because of the 
Division's lack of inspectors, this 
important branch of the work is 
being neglected. There is no at- 
tempt to deny the allegation that 
the ■ present Inspection force can- 
not properly look after current 
complaints. The backlog of com- 
plaints — the number is not known,- 
but it is variously estimated to be 
from 40,000 to 80,000 — is growing 
larger daily, a development decid- 
edly to the disadvantage of the 

The Wage-Hour Division explains 
its return of unexpended funds to

ability to hire enough competent

it gets its help. That allegation 
however, is disputed. There is

If you were stranded in a snake- 
infested swamp, you would do uj; ^- 
less prefer being rescued by a beau- 
tiful lady driving a news Rolls 
Royce. But if that sort of rescuer 
failed to show up and instead- ap- 
peared a recreant bootlegger, flee- 
ing from the vengeance of his 
gangster colleagues, and driving a 
dirty old truck, would you decline 
his proposition that he was going 
in the same direction you had in 
mind and was quite agreeable to 
traveling in your company? 

With some qualifications, that is 
the position in which America finds 
itself in re3ard to Soviet Russia. 

We have the biblical injunction 
to love our enemies, but nowhere 
is the obligation to love our al- 
lies made a duty. In other words, 
as long as the Communists are do- 
ing their part toward staying the 
on-march of Hitler and the sys- 
tem he represents we are going to 
help the Reds, without indorsing 
their destructive and subversive 
principles. The fight the Soviets 
are putting up against the power- 
mad dictator is not with any notion 
of helping this country, except that 
bur benevolent neutrality toward 
Great Britain makes us partners 
in the enterprise of preserving de- 
mocracy. That enterprise perhaps 
leaves Russia cold, but we happen 
to have the same immediate ob- 
jective, even with contrary motives. 
In this kind of fracas it does 
not do to look a gift horse in th« 
mouth. Every German tank de- 
stroyed, every Luftwaffe bomber 
shot down, every Panzer division 
shattered is so much gained by the 
forces opposed to totalitarianism, 
and it is" not a matter of conse- 
quence whether the destruction is 
accomplished by the British R.A.F. 
or bv Stalin's troops. A good many 
people visualize Stalinism and Hlt- 
lerism as twin enemies ot^ civili- 
zation. Certainly civilization is go- 
ing to find it easier to survive ir 
the twins fight each other until one 
or both are exhausted, than if they 
made common cause against dem- 

Guessing at the Outcome 
Total triumph for the Soviets or 
for the Reich is the most impro- 
bable of possible outcomes to the 
struggle. Germany may beat bark 
the Russians, occupy their western 
,cities and overrun the wheat and 
oil fields, but the Russians falling 
back would duplicate the situation 
in China where Japan apparently 
can take what she pleases but can- 
not conquer the country. On the 
other hand, the Russians may be 
able to stem the Nazi tide. Some 
of the military experts tell us that 
a stalemate is the most that can 
be hoped for. At all events, Ameri- 
ca, has no reason to fear Russian 
success, while Hitler success spells 
all manner of peril for our coun 

Any set-back for Hitler, even the 
stalemate that would keep a huge 
German force fighting on an east' 

em front means that much great- 
er advantage for England, and con- 
sequently for us, for the longer suc;i 
a struggle lasts, the nearer will b3 
our approach to complete prepara- 
tion and the maximum of produc- 
tion of the" defense material for 
Great Britain. 

An unhappy element of the sit- 
uation is that the Baltic countries . 
are forced by stress of circumstance 
into the German sphere. So we 
have Sweden permitting the pas- 
sage of a German division to take 
part in the anti-Russian campaign 
from Finland, and we have Fin- 
land — America's favorite among the 
small European nations — siding 
with Hitler. This is not because ei- 
ther Sweden or Finland cherishes 
any love for the Nazi axis, but 
simply because they exist under the 
paw of the Russian bear. The So- 
viet outfit constitutes their imme- 
diate peril. Actually, these Baltic 
countries have no more affection 
for Nazi Germany than we have 
for Red Russia, but expediency 
works in both instances. 

All we can hope is that when 
the struggle is over, and Hitlerism 
has passed into history as a night- 
mare of this generation, we may 
be in a position to save these Bal- 
tic countries from being punished 
for their forced adherence to a hi- 
deous ideology. 

It's Our One Best Bet • 

War is a cold-blooded business. 
and its sole objective must be vic- 
tory. We are in it; and our sole 
hope of avoiding total involvement 
lies in the checking of the Nazi 
drive 'for world dominion before it 
reaches this hemisphere. It is not 
for love of England that we have 
disrupted our whole economic sys- 
tem and made ourselves the ar- 
senal of democracy, it is not for 
love of England that we are rush- 
ing towards the achievement of the 
greatest navy the world has ever 
known and are expanding the tin- 
iest army of any big power into an . 
actual defense force competent to 
meet anything that may be brought 
against us. 

It is not because of any delusions 
we have as to Russia, and the Com- 
munist regime any system that we 
are planning to help the Soviet out- 
but simply because it is expe- 
dient to enable Russia to fight as 
long and as vigorously as possible 
against the Hitler drive. 

Andrew Jackson did not scruple 
to enlist LaFitte's pirates when he 
met the British at New Orleans. 
though we were for hanging any of 
the buccaneers we could lay hanu3 
on, previously. 

It would be Ideal if all the. allies 
that oppose the on-rush of the 
Axis were high-toned Christian na- 
tions, but we have to take the 
world as we find it and make the 
most of such agencies as are avail- 
able. I daresay that if it were a 
possibility that Italy would shift 
sides, we would -accept her, includ- 
ing swaggering, noisy Mussolini. 

That's the kind of a war this is. 

Incidentally, it is doubtful if the 

Stalin crew have any higher re- 

I gard for us than we have for them.

Toyohiko Kagawa Is to Japan 
what Count Tolstoy was to Russia. 
A convert to Christianity, he has 
courted the displeasure of the im- 
perialists who are having things 
very much their own - way in his 
country. His philosophy of non-vio- 
lence has again and again landed 
him in prison. As a Christian re- 
former, - he has wielded much in- 
fluence. The clearance of the Ja- 
panese slums, in particular, is due 
to his indefatigable efforts. Like 
Tolstoy, in the field of literature, 
he is both novelist and pamphele- 
teer; and all his work is imbued 
■with moral significance. Already 
some of his books are available in 
English, and how his life of Jesus 
in the form of a novel has been 
added to the growing list of trans- 

figure differs but little from those 
of the Occidental writers: Allowing 
for difficulties and limitations im- 
posed upon any biographer or no- 
velist who attempts the almost im- 
possible, he does very well indeed, 
and, in its own way, his book can 
stand with those of Paplni and 
Sholem Asch. The primary diffi- 
culty, of course, is to realize a fi- 
gure who IS both God and man. 
And how can any human being, 
even a genius, but finite at best, 
grapple with the problem of the 
nature of divinity? How explain 
miracles, and make them plausi- 
ble to one who is not an eyewit- 
ness and Is living In an age of 
skepticism? The novelist, though he 
be a thousand times a realist, can- 
not make real that which demands 
faith and excludes visual or pictor- 
ial demonstration. He does, in fact, 
what Sholem Asch and other writ- 
ers have done: he takes Jesus — 
the Jesus of the Gospels, who has 
survived centuries of questioning 
and who will survive the present 
Nazi assaults on His teachings — for 
granted. He is content to record the 
miracles, etc., as though these were 
matters beyond discussion. What 
does matter to Kagawa, as it has 
mattered to other biographers of 
Jesus, is how, granted the premises, 

His interpretation of the great I Jesus* own disciples and contem- 

poraries reacted to His great pre- 
sence. Human he certainly sees 
Him, but with a sense of impene- 
trable mystery, which awes all those 
with but a grain of goodness in 
them and confounds and angers all 
those with potentiality for active 

The novelist goes off to a flying 
start by introducing Jesus as a 
man who knew how to laugh. Ak- 
kub, who was a disciple of John 
the Baptist, comes back from bury- 
ing his master, eager to meet Je- 
suh and wondering what sort of 
man this could be of whom John 
spoke in such glowing terms. But 
Akkub is a terrorist, a revolution- 
ary; he imagines that Jesus is here 
to stir physical revolt against the 
power of Rome. After the rugged- 
ness of John, he expects to find 
anything but the gentle, -happy fi- 
gure that meets his eyes: 

"But this man! He had no one 
outstanding quality, either of mor- 
tality'-or spirituality. He was smil- 
ing, young, and extraordinarily 
good looking. Tall, lean and muscu- 
lar.' He appeared to be in a vastly 
cheerful frame of mind and occa- 
sionally world laugh I John the 
Baptist seldom, if ever, laughed. 
Jesus laughed freely and easilyl It 
was not unpleasant to hear such 
laughter, but. Akkub could not un- 

derstand how any man, knowing 
all the weight of sin upon the 
world, could' have the heart to ■ 

In this novel, Jesus is not the 
leading character, for the mere ac- 
ceptance of His divine nature pre- 
cludes this. He is what we should 
call the background, and in its pe- 
numbral shadows the various char- 
acters play out the drama that 
leads to Golgotha and Emmaus'. 
Mary of Magdalen, Mary of Beth- 
any, Martha, Joanna (a convert 
from Herod's set), Drusllla (who it 
is that anoints the Master's 'feet 
with precious ointment), play well 
their roles of understanding and 
compassion. Not less human and 
real are the men, Simon called Pe- 
ter, John the beloved disciple. Bar- 
abbas who starts the political re- 
volt which the Nazarene would not 
sponsor; then Caianhas and Judas, 
the villains of the piece, the first 
somewhat sinister and tainted. It 
must be admitted regretfully, with 
movie technique; the second hu- 
man, all too human — that is, for 
Judas — and his thought ran that 
he "was a business man, not a 
fisherman'.* Surely, there is more 
to Judas than that, if we are to 
accept the fact that he is at the 
other end of the scale from Jesus 
and is, in a sense, the as yet un- 
explained key to the great tragedy. 
It is with these characters that 
Kagawa's novel mainly deals, rath- 
er than with -the proletarian ele- 
ments, as is the case of Sholem 
Asch's book. "Behold the Man" is 
well constructed, decidedly read- 
able and often very moving-.

Department of Conservation said. 

There will be several experiments

costs and possibilities of closer util- 
ization. The Minnesota & Ontario

Steers Advance 25c, All Weights 

Share In Upturn, Hogs Climb, 

Lambs Decline 

South St. Paul, Minn., July 15, 
1941: Broad buying of all weights 
slaughter steers sent prices upward 
fully 25c from the close of last 
week; according to the Federal- 
State Market News Service. Re- 
ceipts were fairly liberal, but there 
was sufficient outlet to absorb the 
supply in active fashion. Numerous 
loads of Choice steers, brought 
$10.75 to $11.00 and there were a 
few yearlings at $11.50. Choice 873 
lb. heifers earned $11.50, also, and 
.several loads brought $10.75 to $11. 
The heifer trade was mostly 25c 
higher. Cows sold steady to strong, 
while bulls advanced fully 25c to j 
carry the ten to $9.25. Stock cattle 
sold at steady levels. Choice 7CS lb. 
fleshy Montana feeding steers re- 
alizedS10.75. Vealers were steady to i 
strong, bulk Good to Choice $10.00 ! 
to $12.00. i 

The trade in the hog division 
found barrows and gilts advancing 
10 to 30c while sows were up most- 
ly 25c. Tuesday's top of $11.10 came 
within 20c of equaling the high 
time of October 1937. Meanwhile 
bulk of the Good and Choice 1G0 
to 260 lb. barrows and gilts sold 
Tuesday at $10.90 to $11.10, while 
most 260 to 300 lb. weights moved 
at $10.65 to $11.00 and 300 to 400 lb. 
averages brought $10.40 to $10.76. 
Good sows under 300 lbs. sold free- 
ly, to $10.25, with kinds from 300 
to 450 lbs. ranging from $10.00 to 
$10.25 and scattered heavier weights 
selling down to $9.90. Feeder pigs 
were mostly 25c higher at $11.00 to 
mostly $11.25. 

Protesting the high cost prices 
of Hveweight lambs as compared 
with present returns for dressed 
carcasses in the east, also expecta- 
tions of liberal runs in the near 
future, allowed buyers to enforce 
25 to 40c lower levels for spring 
lambs. Other slaghter classes held 
generally steady, however, yearlings 
were o -nthe weak side. A keen de- 
mand prevails for breeding ewes, 
yearlings selling unevenly higher. 
Current price limits: Western 
spring lambs $11.35— natives $11.00 
— yearlings $9.00 — slaughter ewes 
$4.50 — new crop western feeder 
Iambs $10.35 — native feeders $9.50 — 
yearling breeding ewes $9.65.

July 2, 1941 
Dear Editor: 

It is now some time since we 
have said anything about our Flood; 
Control Project. There has not been 
much to report the last few months 
and there Is not much to report 
just now. However, that does not 
mean that nothing Is being done. 
The TJ. .S. Army . engineers at St. 
Paul have been seriously handicap- 
ped because of lack of trained men 
since the national preparedness 
program requires more trained en- 
gineers than are -available. Our of- 
fice at St. Paul-which is In charge 
j of Captain J. W. Moreland contin- 
| ues its services to the best of its 
I capacity. 

The present situation along Red 
Lake River and especially r.Iong th= 
Clearwater River does bring ths 
j seriousness of flood condition'; 
again to our attention. I wish to 
assure all of our readers that the 
Red Lake River Flocd Control. As- 
sociation has not decreased its en- 
deavors to do ever/thing possible 
for the promotion of our import- 
ant project. We are maintaining 
constant contact with officials in 
charge of the necessary surveys and 
reports. It is hard to be patient 
while many are suffering further 
damage and this year will reaffirm 
the urgent need of flood control. 
Such damages as are being suffered 
by floods so far this year would 
never have been if a good flood 
control project had been construc- 
ted now. 

Since the heavy rains began the I 
TJ. S. Army office at St. Paul has 
sent out men to re-check their for- 
mer figures and calculations. Such 
re-checking can only re-establish 
the eminent need of a comprehen- 
sive river project. I believe that we 
can be reasonably certain that 
when the project is completely cal- 
culated that it will be comprehen- 
sive enough to really solve the 
problem. No information as to what 
will be done and how is yet avail- 
able. Facts and figures will no doubt 
determine the manner of solution. 
We are fortunate to have such a 
capable and sympathetic man as 
Captain Moreland heading the U. 
S. Army office at St. Paul. 

The Red Lake Flood Control As- 
sociation has already reported on 
damages this year and survey men 
have been over the area. We have 
the assurance that those who will 
suffer from loss of hay and feed 
crops necessary' f° r the feeding 01 
their livestock, will bo taken care 
of. The Directors of the said As- 
sociation met at Oklec last Mon- 
day evening. A serious loss of hay 
and feed crops was reported in sev- 
eral sections. This situation will be 
given our continued attention now. 
Meanwhile It becomes increasingly 
evident that the cause for floods 
can and must be remedied in the 
near future.

Control Association. 

Rev. E. L: Tungseth returned 
Saturday from a trip to Belling-

in it, to the astonishment of the 
handsome driver. Thrilled beyond 
.words, she accepts the young man's 
proffer of a date for the evening. '

Feeding is the number one job 
when it comes to raising pullets. 
You can take Cora Cooke's word for 
it — this practice of letting them 
shift for themselves is out of date, 
according to the University Farm's 
poultry specialist. Farm grains 
should make up 90 per cent of an 
average poultry menu. At least 
three grains should be used, but 
even In summer, with pullets on 
range, other feeds such as meat 
scraps, milk, and salt are needed to 
balance these grains for growth.

Ball Team Upsets 
Plummer 11-7 

Visiting Aggregation Has Bad In- 
ning, Letting In a Half Dozen 
Tallies For T. R- F. 

. Thief River Palls baseball team 
wpset tne dope bucket last Sunday 
at the Fairgrounds when they took 
the measure of Plummer's highly- 
touted, but over-rated team by an 
11 to 7 count. Plummer led all the 
■way up to the last half of the 
eighth inning, but seemed to fall 
apart then -when the locals sent 6 
runs across the plate. 

The Red, Sox started off with a 
bang in the first inning when they 
scored 3 runs, getting a lot of help 
from Thief River men on errors. 
It looked like the forecast of a 
Plummer victory was true dope as 
they scored another run in the 
second. Thief River came to life in 
their half of the second, scoring 
twice. Another pair of runs in the 
third knotted the count at 4-all. 
plummer added one in the 4th and 
the locals got one in the fifth to 
make things even again. It was 
Plummer's turn to score, so they 
added one in the 7th and another 
in the 8th, making the score 7-5 in 
favor of the visitors. Just when it 
appeared the game was all sewed 
up for the Sox, Thief River batters 
made up their minds to hit the ball, 
and hit the ball they did, because 
•when it was all over, the batters 
bad sent 6 runs across the plate to 
complete the scoring. Three errors 
and a passed ball helped the locals 
out in "their big inning. 

Catcher Nornes had a big day for 
Thief River, getting a pair of dou- 
bles and batting in four runs. Wally 
DuChamp blasted out 3 singles in 6 
trfcjs to the plate. Bromberg got a 
double and single and Offerdahl 
two singles to help the Thief River 
cause. Hovanac, Sox hurler, got 
four for four, among them two dou- 
bles. McGrady slapped out a pair of 
singles to follow Hovanac in the 
Sox hitting department. 

Jesse DuChamp again came 
across with some sensational field- 
ing, this time stopping two line 
drives that appeared to be cinch 
hits. Bill Hallamack chalked up 
consecutive victory number 6 in 
allowing 13 hits, 7 runs, striking 
out 7 and walking 4. Hovanac, with 
Fargo-Moorhead of the Northern 
ILeague during the early part of the 
current baseball season, fanned 9, 
walked 7, and gave up 13 hits.

Because of the local Legion Jun- | reduced by placing the patient in 
lor baseball team's inability to win \ the hot sun for several hours. 

games, they have been the target 
of criticism. Some critics have been 
on hand to watch the juniors play; 
others just offer criticism without 
seeing the team in action 1 . Assuming 
the criticism is aimed at the faulty 
play of the outfit, let's look at what 
happens to teams with greater ex- 
perience. Last Sunday's Plummer- 
Thief River game was marred by 11 
errors; these made by players who 
graduated from Junior ranks long 
ago. In a recent Northern League 
battle between Grand Forks and 
Eau Claire, each team was credited 
with 3 errors, these committed by 
men who have been through Le- 
gion ball, college ball, and perhaps 
more. So let's all be fair and square 
with the boys who are trying to 
make the Thief River junior team 
one to be proud of. 

Softball New Deal 

Comes time for the second round 
of the Tri-County Diamondball 
League to begin. Coming with it is 
a noticeable absence of teams. CCC, 
Viking and NYA are no longer com- 
peting, making the League a 5-team 
affair. NYA dropped out before the 
close of the first round, when the 
local NYA school shut down. Vik- 
ing became team No. 2 to tall by 
the way-side, when getting players 
together became too big a problem. 
CCC got the ax from local officials 
and were more than slightly dis- 
turbed about the whole thing. They 
arrived in town for a game Mon- 
day night of this week to find they 
were no longer members of the 
League. Their argument: "One of 
'our chief recreation activities has 
been taken away from us". At any 
rate the five leading teams are still 
members of the League, which 
makes for more evenly matched 
games— and that is something. 
Bridgeman's ten felt the whole 
transaction in adverse to their de- 
sires. The" new league has them in 
the cellar; the old in 5th place,

A Fish Story 

Ames Pederson, local angler, and 
his son were doing a bit of fishing 
in Lake of the Woods over the 4th 
holiday. When the boy's line got a 
little low, the old man hollers, "Get 
your line up or youll have half the 
bottom on your hook". A short time 
later, Ames gave his line an awful 
tug, then another, and so on. When 
everything was finally out of the 
lake and in the boat, Mr. Peder- 
son was twenty to twenty-five bucks 
richer— the estimated value of the 
rod and reel found on his nook. 
Ill bet his face got red when the 
boy asked, "What was that you said 
about fishing too low, Pop?" 
Sports Chatter 
Louie Benson, former local and 
Plu m mer ball- player, was honored

Team Wins Both Games 

In a double header witk the 
Karlstad team played on the Karl- 
stad diamond Sunday our ball 
team won both ends of a double 
header, the first 8 to 5 and the 
second 18 to 2. OrviUe Johnson was 
on the mound for the locals through 
both games and was certainly too 
fast company for the Karlstadites. 
This leaves the team standing in 
the league a tie with Gatzke with 
seven wins and two defeats. Ac- 
cording to the scheduled season 
program there should be two games 
yet to play to finish the season, 
but as the OCC team has broken 
up and forfeited its remaining 
game, one more game will decide 
the matter, unless both Middle Ri- 
ver and Gatzke win, in which case 
those two teams will have a play- 
off to decide who gets the season's 
prize money of $30. Middle River's 
one remaining game Is with Grygla 
a week from next Sunday. Next 
Sunday is an open date for our 
home team, though efforts are be- 
ing made to arrange a non-league 
game with some outside team.

extra curricular activities, defense 
training projects, financial reports, 
resi^nuions and election of teach- 
es % e -eiu school board proceea- 
in«'s and a number of other ac- 
tivities uertaining to Independent 
School District No. 18. 

in Ins reoort Mr. Bye submitted 
a figure of SH1.H3.79 as the total 
amount of the expenditures of the 
school district during the past fis- 
cal vear 37636.71 is the balance of 
the " 5118.750.50 budget. Expendi- 
tures of S2.447.63 were made in a 
bud"et of S2.450.00 for capital out- 
lay "with $2.37 remaining. $15,079.37 
was used to pay off bonds and in- 
terest on bonds, leaving a debit ol 
SI 871 87 from a $13,207.50 budget. 

In the treasurer's report of mon- 
eys received and disbursed by him, 
a balance of $17,549.61 is revealed 
in the general fund. S13.627.64 in 
the bond and interest fund. $136.60 
in the building fund, and a total 
balance of $31,315.85 in the com- 
bined • funds. 

ADproval was given for the pur- 
chase of three new street drums 
for the high school band, which, 
the reoort shows, made 79 public 
appearances during the school 
year, a definite increase over the 
number of aopearances by the band 
in 1939-40. 

A complete report was submitted 
on the activities of the N. Y. A. 
students in the national defense 
project which was carried on at 
the school. A total of 98 students 
were enrolled in the courses which 
were offered, beginning Feb. 24. 
With the closing of the local resi- 
dent center this week, the remain- 
in- enrollees were transferred to a 
larger center at Glenwood. 

An increase of 38 students over 
last vea.-'s enrollment was shown 
in the record of 17,00 pupils at- 
tendi::^ school in this district in 
1940-41". The junior-senior high 
school contained 880 students, 14 
more than in 1939-40. The board 
decided td enlist again the services 
of 'the school nurse in taking a 
census of all children in the dist- 
rict under 21 years of age. Accord- 
ing to law this must be done be- 
tween Aug. 15 and Sept. 15.

12 FSA County Councils 
Here For District Meet 

(Continued From Page One) 
Milo G. Flaten, state FSA director, 
reported recently. 

Summarizing a survey made of 
the progress of families taking part 
in this U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture program in Minnesota, Fla- 
tfir-said that in the past six years 
40,135 families have received loans, 
and 9.565 additional families have 
had other rehabilitation assistance. 

The loan cases. Flaten. explained, 
are divided into two broad classi- 
fications, standard and non-stand- 
ard, both of which are self-liquida- 

"There are at present 11,419 stan- 
dard loans in Minnesota," he said. 
"These standard loans have been 
made to farm families on the basis 
of balanced farm and home plans. 
Since these families are those 
whose problems have piled up over 
a number of years, they need long- 
ran<*e plans of operation which will 
help them eet on a self-sustaining 
basis again. 

"Emergency loans have been 
made to 27,690 families whose con- 
dition was not quite so critical as 
those who received standard loans. 
These families were suffering from 
the ill effects of one or two crop 
failures, and are expected to recov- 
er in a much shorter time than 
those who needed standard loans." 
Since the start of the program, 
10,503 Minnesota borrowers have 
completely repaid their loans. 

'•in- a limited number of cases," 
Flaten explained, "we have found 
it necessary to make grants in or- 
der to get the family off to a sound 
start. Usually these grants were 
! just enough to tide the family over 
until the end of the first crop year. 
I iv Minnesota these grants have 
averaged S278.27 per family over a 
five-year period." 

The survey also showed that of 
the $11,868,335 which has been 
loaned to date in -Minnesota, $3,- 
925,231 has been repaid to the Fed- 
eral Treasury as instalments on 
the loans. 

"Since much of the money loan- 
ed does not fall due for four or 
five years," Flaten pointed out, 
"there is every reason to expect 
that the great bulk of it will be 
repaid. We are particularly proud 
of this collection record because by 
normal business standards, Farm 
Security borrowers certainly would 
not be considered goad credit risks. 
Rehabilitation loans are made only 
to families who cannot get ade- 
quate credit from other sources, and 
nearly all of them either were on 
relief or were approaching the re- 
lief level." 

Debt adjustment services were 
another aspect of FSA activities in- 
cluded in the survey. Flaten ex- 
plained that since one of the pur- 
poses- of the Farm Security pro- 
gram is to aid distressed farmers 
to achieve financial .independence, 
debt adjustment often is necessary 
before rehabilitation can be start-* 
ed. 'He pointed out that the debt 
adjustment service is available to 
all farmers regardless of whether 
they are taking part In the Farm 
Security program. 

"Although the local committees 
which negotiate debt adjustments 
have no legal authority," Flaten 
said, "they usually succeed- in scal- 
ing down the obligations, reducing 
the Interest rates, or getting the 
payment period extended. In Min- 
nesota, debt reductions totaling 
S3.516.905 have been negotiated for 
individual farmers. This represents 
a scale-down of 28 per cent. As a 
direct result of the^e adjustments, 
S120.847 in back taxes has been 
paid to local governments in the 

"We recognize," Flaten said, "that 
the health, welfare, and morale of 
our people are vitally important 
to national defense. Providing for 
these needs among low-income 
farm families has been one of the 
essential contributions of the FSA 
to the Nation's defense efforts dur- 
ing the past year." 

entered on a master list. As soon 
as nossible after the drawing copies 
of this list will be furnished to the 
country's 6,500 selective service 
boards for then- guidance in Inte- 
grating the latest group of regis- 
trants among the men already on 
the rolls. 

In Pennington county one new 
registrant will be placed after each 
group of 11 old registrants. The 
drawing today will determine the 
order in which the 105 new 21-year- 
olds will be placed among the 
names of those previously register- 
ed. This means that the new regis- 
trant with Sequence Number 1 in 
the county will receive the lowest 
call order number assigned to the 
group in this county, and the re- 
gistrant with the largest sequence' 
number will receive the highest call 
order number for^the 104 men. 

There were 100 registered in this 
county July l- Since that date 5 
men have transferred their num- 
bers to Pennington county in excess 
of those who nave transferred else- 

Crop Conditions In 

N-W Best In Years 

(Continued From Page One) 
Harvesting of rye was expected 
to start this week and wheat cut- 
ting will begin in two weeks. 

Condition of wheat, barley, oats 
and flax was .placed at HO per 
cent of last year. Potatoes, dam- 
aged by too much rain, are 85 per 
cent of a year ago and corn 90 
per cent. The hay crop is above 

Marshall County 
Small grain in Marshall county, 
except for barley, were estimated 
by County Agent R. A. Reierson at 
approximately 10 per cent better 
than a year ago and the condition 
of barley will be close to that fi- 
gure. Croos generally are much 
above normal at this time, the 
county agent said. 

Leaf rust is in evidence but no 
estimate has been placed on the 
amount of possible damage. There 
has been no wind or hall damage. 
Red Lake County 
Red Lake county's small grain 
crop is above normal and 20 per 
cent better than a year ago, Coun- 
ty Agent C. W. DeSart estimated. 

Thatcher wheat is raised gener- 
ally in the county, so there Is lit- 
tle danger of black rust, but there 
is red rust in most fields. Crops 
have lodged some, resulting in 
about ten per cent damage. There 
has been little damage from hail 
or wind. More' moisture is needed 
to mature and keep the crop at 
the present estimated condition. 

Condition of wheat was .placed at 
120 -ner cent of last year; barley. 
125 oer cent, oats 110 per cent and 
flax" HO oer cent. Potatoes have 
been drowned out in many places 
and the condition, the county agent 
said, is now only about 50 per cent 
of las tyear. Corn also was placed 
at 50 ner cent, but the hay crop 
was reoorted as far above normal. 
The largest spring wheat crop 
since 1928 was forecast by the agri- 
culture deuartment last week. 

July 1 conditions indicate a crop 
of 241,292,00 bushels, it was report- 
ed. If realized, this will be the lar- 
gest spring wheat crop since the 
294,200,000-bushel yield of 1928. 
This year's forecast compares with 
213,007,000 indicated- a month ago, 
227,547,000 produced last year and 
178,090,000 bushels, the 1930-39 av- 

The combined wheat crop (win- 
ter and" spring) was estimated at 
923,613,00 bushels. This compares 
with a forecast a month ago of 
910,699,000 bushels, a 1940 produc- 
tion of 816.698,000 bushels and a 
1930-39 average of 747,507,00 bush-

Merten Ward of Omaha, Neb., ar- 
rived Monday for a weeks visit at 
the N. A. Holen and John Ward 
homes. They will leave this week 
end for Chicago, accompanied by 
Margery Ward who has been visit- 
ing here. -Miss Merten will leave 
Chicago by olane for New York 
City where she will enter the ser- 
vices of the American Air-Lines as 
stewardess between Chicago and

She was a graduate of the local 
high school in 1936. Last May she 
completed the Nurses Training 
course at the M. E. hospital in 
Omaha. In her airline service Miss

have a day's rest before she takes 
the homeward trip, taking another 
day off when getting there. 

New Regulations Made 
To Speed Claims For 
Unemployment Benefit 

Because the Federal Social Se- 
curity Board has required revised 
regulations and procedures In Min- 
nesota, effective June 1, for the 
payment of partial unemployment 
benefits, C. H. Sjolander, local man- 
ager of the Employment-Security 
Division's office In Thief River 
Falls, is urging all employers and 
workers to familiarize themselves 
with the new system which became 
effective. Mr. Sjolander says that 
there may be employees who are 
entitled to partial unemployment 
benefits but who have not been 
receiving them. The revised pro- 
cedures, he says, are designed to 
expedite the:fillng and payment of 
claims and should prove more ef- 
fective than the old method. 

The main problem, according to 
Mr. Sjolander, has been . that 1 both 
employers and workers have had no 
clear idea of .what partial unem- 
ployment Is,- and under what cir- 
cumstances benefits are payable for 
this type of unemployment under

Grand Forks Noses Out 
Improved Jr. Legion Club 

A much improved Thief River 
Falls American, Legion junior base- 
ball team lost/to Grand Forks by 
a 3 to 2 score at the Fairgrounds 
Wednesday night of this week. 
Grand Forks' blasted the locals by 
scores of 19 to 1 and 10 to in 
two previous' games this season. 

Scoring started in the first In- 
ning when Grand Forks' leadoft 
man Bennet singled. Bredston 
walked and Schue doubled, send- 
ing Bennet across the plate. After 
Angelo walked, Lorentson retired 
the next three batters via the 
strickeout route. With two away 
in the bottom half of the first in- 
ning, Matheson gained first on 
Benson's error. Berg walked, fol- 
lowed by Reierson's single, which 
brought Matheson home. Biddick 
poked out a long single, scoring 
Berg, while Reierson was being put 
out between second and third. 

A pitcher's battle took place for 
the next 'four innings, neither team 
scoring. Thormoen's error permlt- 
.ted Hofmeaster to get on first in 
the sixth. He was batted in by He- 
bert to tie up the ball game. In' 
the seventh Inning, Schue singled 
and was brought home by Rosen- 
berg, giving them the run needed 
for victory. 

Schue, with a double and single 
led the winning batsmen. Biddick 
and Reierson collected a hit apiece 
in one time up to top Thief River 

The game turned out to be a pit- 
cher's duel par excellence as He- 
bert fanned 15 and Lorentson 14. 
Hebert issued 2 walks, Lorentson 
5. Thief River collected 2 hits off 
Hebert, while Lorentson was al- 
lowing 6.

Selective "service headquarters in 
Washington announced last week 
that the lottery for newly registered 
men of 21 would be held there late 

A total of "800 numbers are to be

July 1 was 661 in the Sparrows 
Point district of Baltimore. 

Secretary of War Stimson will 
draw the first number from the 
same glass jar out of which thou- 
sands of numbers were taken in 
the draft lottery last October when 
priorities, for service were deter- 
mined, for 16,500,000 men.

curity Act, the new name of the* R e i erson , if

known as the Unemployment Com- Biddick, cf 
pensation Law. - ' Campbell, rf, ss 

A worker, it is explained, is par- corn, rf 
tially unemployed when he works Lorentson, p 
for a regular - ; employer but suffers gnelling, 
a loss of earnings because of a re- 
duction in his working hours, due 
to lack of work, below normal full* 
time. A manedqes not. have to lose 
his job to claim partial, benefits. 
The ■ employer-employee relation- 
ship Is maintained but the em- 
ployee does not work full time. 
However, he must be available for 
full time work if .his employer 
needs him. 

Mr. Sjolander pointed out that 
partial benefits are payable only 
where the worker's reduced earn- 
ings are due to lack of work on his 
regular job. They are not Intended 
to compensate workers who, for 
personal reasons, choose to work 
less than full time. 

Under the new regulations, em- 
ployers are required to notify then- 
workers of potential eligibility and 
must verify low wage statements so 
as to assist the Division In making 
payments promptly. 

Full cooperation between employ- 
ers, employees, and the local office 
of the Employment-Security Divi- 
sion Is necessary in order that the 
new procedures can be carried out 
efficiently and with the least 
amount of work for all concerned, 
explains Mr. Sjolander. 

The local office of the Division 
has full Information on the new 
procedures that became effective 
June 1, and will gladly, help both 
employers and workers who have 
questions regarding partial unem- 
plovment benefits. 

The above anplies only to work- 
ers who are employed by employers 
liable under the Minnesota Employ- 
ment and Security Act.

Bntered as Second Class matter April 27th, 1932, at 
tlie post office at Thief River Falls, Minnesota, 
and re-entered under new title at same office on 
February 21, 1935, under Ac> of Congress of Marcn 
3, 1897. 


President Roosevelt sent a message . to Congress 
Monday asking that he be granted the authority to 
keep in training those who have already had one 
year of army life under the draft. He asserted that 
schemes against this country are so numerous that 
an emergency should be declared and that these 
trainees be, therefore, given more training. 

We believe that is more or less unfair to those 
•who have been drafted since October 1940. We fail 
to see that an emergency grave enough exists to 
prolong their training. The promise was made that 
these boys would be home after 12 months army 
duty, and a large portion of them joined voluntarily 
ahead of their draft turn so as to be out that much 

objectives are attained— and there is a good chance 
that they will be attained— at least some beneficial 
results will have come from, the aluminum shortage. 
It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good. 

Trespassing at the Capitol 

(By Special Correspondent*) &- 


The Nazi-Soviet war is causing some amusing 
situations In England and over here as well. It is 
hard for some of the conservatives in these countries 
to admit that our democracies are in any manner 
benefited by the .stand Stalin's troops are maintain- 
ing against the Nazi forces of Adolf Hitler. Re T 
gardless of the fact that they hate Hitler they find 
it difficult to confess that the Soviet army is part 
of the front that safeguards democracies. 

We listened Sunday to H. V. Kaltenborn's radio 
talk when he stated he was shocked while attending 
a New York movie performance the night before 
when Stalin's picture on the screen was loudly ap- 
plauded. He couldn't imagine an American audience 
would stoop to such a "depravity" or something on 
that order. 

He went on to say that we cannot trust Stalin. 
The latter made a treaty with Hitler in 1939 just 
before the war broke out and is likely to double- 
cross us at anytime by making another treaty with 
Hitler if the war is too tough on him, Kaltenborn 

We don't confess that we are sympathetic to 
Bolshevik ideas but we feel that we can speak, from 
a more neutral viewpoint than Mr. Kaltenborn who 
speaks for Pure Oil and a lot of others who are 

Anti-Labor Forces 
Routed In House 


Under this we do not include the national guard spokesmen of Big Business, 

or other reserves who have agreed to answer the \ 
call to duty whenever it is demanded. However, the 
drafted soldier is in a different category and we are 
certain that most of our readers will agree with us 
that the emergency necessary to compel them to con- 
tinue in training will be a declaration of war. 

We are uncertain as to the amount of training 
these servicemen have been able to absorb in a 
year's time. But judging the present by the past 
they should be capable soldiers in one year's time. 
Most of our soldiers in 1917 had less than that 
amount of training. We, therefore, ask that the 
present policy of drafting men" for one year's service 
be continued and by so doing build up a reserve 
«ipable for defense alone. 

Another phase of the issue is the amount of 
fighting England and Canada are doing, countries 
-which are already in the war. We have assisted 
England with the idea it do something to defeat 
Hitler. To us it is apparent that John Bull could 
do a bit of invasion of the German Front to the 
•west. But he seems unwilling to move. The Eng- 
lish soldiers Uncle Sam relieved in taking over Ice- 
land evidently have gotten a long furlough and are 
vacationing at home. 

Canada likewise seems to be doing little pre- 
paration in the line of training its soldiers. How 
many of us cannot recall how the Canucks played 
hockey (hookey) here last winter while our, own 
boys had to go to camp! 

We want Hitler stopped at all odds. But we 
feel that it is time that King George and his men 
do something else than retreating and waiting. 


Gov. Harold Stassen and Mayor Kline of Min- 
neapolis had little— nothing at all— to say in reply 
to Rev. Henry J. Soltau's charge that they had been 
negligent in enforcing gambling laws and prevent- 
ing vice in and around : the Twin Cities. Soltau 
stated that when Stassen was county -attorney of 
Dakota County (So. St. Paul) gambling and liquor 
violations were rampant there. Mayor Kline, he 
said, has no intention of infarclng laws governing 
certain kinds of gambling in Minneapolis. He ac- 
cused the mayor of failing to clamp down on vice and 
gambling dens when he should have done so. The 
governor and mayor have ducked away from any 
answer to the charges. 

The Minneapolis situation turned mysterious last 
week when Edward Hanson, newly appointed police 
chief, resigned and departed for his home at Duluth 
without uttering a word why. It is evident he found 
the mayor connected with the underworld to such 
an extent that he became disgusted. Since he came 
to Duluth it is evident that the resigned police chier 
is being kept hushed up until a good alibi can be 

If we cannot trust Stalin we wonder if he Is 
entirely to blame? Uncle Sam sent an army on an 
expedition to Archangel to vex the Soviet in 1918. 
Our stoogies for the capitalists, Harding, Coolidge 
and Hoover, denounced the Soviet on every occasion 
that came handy when they were in office. When 
Roosevelt took up negotiations with Russia in 1933, 
Samuel Insull, Howard Hopson, Geo. Whitney and 
other swindlers who are now in prison, along with 
the Morgans, the Weirs, and Mellons, were vociferous 
in their outcry against any negotiations with Russia. 
And the English multi-millionaires have equally been 
as hostile to Russia," encouraging Hitler's buildup to 
attack Stalin during the years prior to 1939. Even 
in the latter year John Bull was hoping Hitler would 
jump on Stalin, only to find the Nazi leader turned 
on John Bull Instead. 

It is true that the Soviet agreed to quit sending 
funds to propaganda promoters here in those nego- 
tiations in 1933 but that he failed to desist. At the 
same time our big exponents of capitalism have 
carried on an equally unfriendly campaign to over- 
throw Stalin in his own country. 

Under these cJnMitlons is it sensible -to expect 
that Stalin could Trust us any more than we could 
trust him? If the Russians want the Soviet system 
it is equally as important that we quit undermining 
Stalin as it is for him to quit undermining our sys- 
tem of government. 

Under the present emergency, therefore, we think 
it logical to applaud Stalin and his forces for their 
stand against Naziism and Fascism and in the mean- 
time forget who is the worst doublecrosser, Stalin 
or Uncle Sam and John Bull. 



It certainly was class interest as against the 
nation's interest that induced Walter D. Fuller, pre- 
sident of the National Association of Manufacturers, 
to issue a statement that there was no shortage of 
aluminum for defense needs just as the country's 
housewives, in a spirit of patriotism, were getting 
ready to turn in^their badly needed aluminum pots 
and pans to aid Uncle Sam's defense effort. This 
unpatriotic statement undoubtedly was to divert the 
thoughts of the housewives from what Secretary 
Ickes calls the "recalcitrance" of the Aluminum Com- 
,pany of America — thoughts that couldn't possibly be 
doing that monopolistic enterprise any good. 

Mr. Puller knows — every child in the country 
knows — that there IS a shortage of aluminum fcr 
defense needs. And he also knows — as most people 
are beginning to know — that the monopolistic prac- 
tices of the Aluminum Company of America In keep- 
ing production of aluminum down and prices up are 
directly responsible for this shortage. Thus, even 
though he knew that he would be doing irreparable 
damage to the aluminum scrap collection campaign. 
Fuller attempted to take the heat off his friends. 

Rteht now. the Aluminum Company of" America 
is pretty much on the spot with American public 
opinion, despite the efforts of the N.A.M. president 
and other friends of the company — even their friends 
in Congress, of whom there are many. And it ap- 
pears as though *iey are on the spot to stay. Sidney 
Hillman and William Knudsen came out with a blast 
at Fuller, although not mentioning him by name. 
And two members of the House Military Affairs 
Committee-^-Sparkman of Alabama and Brooks of 
Louisiana — got out a minority report holding the 
Aluminum Company of America directly responsible 
for the shortage of this vital defense material. They 
took issue with the majority report of this com- 
mittee, which held that ALCOA has cooperated 100 
per cent with the defense effort— a scandalous re- 
port for public officials to make. 

ALCOA is quite disturbed about current public 
opinion, which* has reached a very potent stage. The 
company fears that this opinion is going to result 
in a demand that this airtight monopoly be broken, 
for all time, and that the/price of aluminum be 



The Minnesota League of Municipalities are 
sending out publicity to all the newspapers of the 
state, resolutions condemning the organization of co- 
operative generating plants financed by the REA. 
They do this under the plea that they are detri- 
mental to municipal plants. We think the League 
has stepped off on the wrong foot again, just as 
when they took up the issue of liquor interest against 
county option. 

Municipal plants have not been overly eager to 
give service to the REA co-operative distributing 
units. They do not think there is any money in it 
for them, so why should they care? It is the big 
power companies that are worrying over these co- 
operative plants, and they use the case of a few 
municipal plants which may have been or expect to 
be disconnected by the co-op lines, as catspaws to 
pull their chestnuts out of the fire. 

From what we have been able to learn the re- 
solutions published are based upon premises which 
are not sustained by facts. The co-op generating 
plants may not have been run long enough as yet 
to fully determine what their rates will be, but so 
also is their business just beginning to develop and 
with every prospect of reducing the rate they had to 
pay the power companies after their first year had 
expired. The last month's record at Maple Lake, we 
understand, was l.l cents per kilowatt with the line 
loss apparently for some strange reason less than 
when they took "juice" from the power company. 

And in this rate is included the overhead and 
all the items figured to amortize and extinguish the 
debt they owe the government, which when paid will 
make this generating unit a part of the farmers' 
own system. The latest REA "Kilowatt" of the 
Kandiyohi Co-op will contain the announcement that, 
it has just made another advance payment on" the 
principal to the government of $20,000, which with 
the $15,000 previously paid makes to date a reduc- 
tion of $35,000 on the principal of the debt of this 
co-op. of about two years of running, which -we 
understand is above "and beyond the rules for the 
regular amortized payments. 

The privately owned power companies had all 
the field to themselves but did nothing to give elec- 
tricity to the farmers at reasonable rates for years 
and years. They were content to skim off the cream 
from localities -where population was dense and leave 
others out in the dark. ■ It comes of mighty poor 
grace for the municipalities of the state through their 
organization to try to discredit the wonderful pro- 
gress made by ' the co-ops and which has brought 
millions of dollars of business to merchants all over 
the state. The League should shy at lobbyists and 
agents of power interests who always hover around 
to try means of poisoning the minds of the public 
against co-ops that are trying to benefit their mem- 
bers and give them service where none was to be 
had before. — Wlllmar Tribune. 

The reactionaries on Capitol Hill 
have been decisively licked in thelr 
first real and determined attempt 
put through restrictive labor 
laws in this session of Congress. 
This was the defeat In the House 
last week of the so-called' May bill 
to "afford protection to all per- 
sons engaged in the operation of 
such (defense) plant or Industry 
who voluntarily desire to work"— 
one of those nice little bills that 
would "protect" the exploited work- 
er in -his right to be exploited, all, 
of course, In the Interest of the 
exploiting employer. 

The defeat of the May bill was 
accomplished by a vigorous cam- 
paign on the oart of the A. F. of 
L., the CXO., the railroads brother- 
hoods and all other important sec- 
tions of American labor, aided by 
the Administration, which sent 
word to the House via the grape- 
vine route that it wants no part 
of this type of legislation. The an- 
ti-labor crowd is a badly beaten 
lot, and unless unforseen circum- 
stances develop, which nobody an- 
ticipates, it is difficult to see how 
they can get up sufficient steam to 
again threaten to enact their pro- 
gram into law. 

The lesson to labor is plain: 
Without a single exception, when- 
ever labor, in recent years present- 
ed a united front In opposition to 
pending legislation inimical to la- 
bor's interest, and put up a vigor- 
ous fight, they sent their enemies 
scurrying for cover. 

Make ho mistake about it, the 
anti-labor gang put everything they 
■had into this one. The Vinson bill 
was sidetracked for the May bill. 
Every ruse and trick known to the 
profession were employed by them. 
They attached the May bill as a 
rider to the draft deferment bill— 
a bill which had no opposition— to 
enhance its chances of passage. 
Lurid anti-labor literature, with 
photographs showing "helpless wor- 
kers" being beaten by strikers — not 
strikers being bludgeoned, as is us- 
ually the case — were profusely dis- 
tributed. The tom-toms were beat- 
ing fiercely, and rivulets of tears 
(of the crocodile variety) were shed 
by the reactionaries for the "boys 
in camp," the "poor Jims," as 
Georgia's ' Gene Cox called them — 
incidentally, the sons of the very 
workers who were seeking living 
wages to keep the home fires burn- 
ing while the boys are doing then- 
bit. But it availed them nothing; 
their game was too obvious. 

It is significant that the anti- 
labor gang suffered their real de- 
feat in the House, where their 
strength is greater than It is in the 
Senate. When debate on the meas- 
ure started on Wednesday of last 
week, the sponsors of the bill seem- 
ed to have a commanding majority. 
The following day, however, when 
it became generally known that the 
President was against it, and when 
labor representatives let it be 
known that every member of the 
House who supported the bill would 
be held to a strict accounting when 
election day comes around, it be- 
came obvious that their ranks' were 
breaking. Aged Rep. Sabath, 111., 
chairman of the House Rules Com- 
mittee, tdok the floor to oppose the 

rule of his own committee In tying 
this rider to the draft deferment 
bill, and called the turn when he 
charged that a small group, not 
Interested in national defense at 
all, was trying to put this bill over 
for ulterior purposes. It was ludi- 
crous to see fellows like Michigan's 
Clare Hoffman, who have consist- 
ently opposed nearly every national 
defense measure, pleading for this 
one "to strengthen national de-

Current Capital Comment 

The President has approved con- 
struction of ; ip,070 more homes for 
defense workers and enlisted per- 
sonnel In 34 different localities. 
Because he accepted fees totalling 
$31316 from contractors for "con- 
sultant services" on defense jobs, 
the Army has requested and has 
received the resignation of R, C. 
Marshall, of Washington, as bri- 
gadier general. Marshall was not 
on active duty. There Is no lack 
of patriotism on the part of Ameri- 
ca's female blondes, as was shown 
when the War Department recent- 
ly announced that blonde hair "not 
less than 12 inches long" was badly 
needed for defense for delicate me- 
teorological instruments. The res- 
■ponse was recorded as "magnifi- 
cent." They say that the answer to 
tanks may be «* the -dive-bombers 
equipped with rapid-firing, armor- 
piercing cannon. If so, the tank 
will have become obsolete in mo- 
dem warfare. Father Cdughlin says 
that he is going to continue to sup- 
port the America First Committee, 
despite the efforts of some of Its 
leaders to repudiate him. The De- 
troit priest says that he "applauds 
and reveres" Sen. Wheeler and 

Charles Lindbergh. Shortage or 
aluminum now threatens to curtail- 
the production of radio sets next- ■ 
fall. *It Is said that the State De- 
partment is refusing to shut off 
the flow of oil to Japan, not tor- 
appease the Ja-ps but rather as- 
counter appeasement bait — so that 
the Japs will appease the United. 
States. That Is what is known as- 
appeasement In the reverse — and It- 
sounds screwey. The steel people- 
are beginning to grumble because 
the prices of finished steel have- 
been " frozen. They point to the- 
worker and the farmer as being- 
better 1 off than they are. Human 
nature Is a mighty funny thing. 
Sen. Whee'.er believes that the best 
way of -ssurlng Hitler's defeat is. 
to let him get so much of other 
people's property, that he will die 
of indigestion. Well, the United 
States is quite a chunk of land, so- 
why not hand it over to Hitler in 
order to hasten his demise? Walter 
S. Tower, president of the Ameri- 
can Iron and Steel Institute, has 
resigned his position with the In- 
dustrial Materials Division of OPM, 
in conformity with the new policy 
of making employes of trade asso- 
ciations ineligible as employes or 

Dispelling the Fog 

Milk and Egg Production 

Creation of agricultural defense 
boards throughout the country is 
said to be due to failure of the 
Department of Agriculture to have 
substantially . increased milk and 
egg production to the desired 
amounts. These .products are deem- 
ed essential to defense, particularly 
because of the need for increasing 
exportation of cheese, butter, and 
eggs to Great Britain to meet the 
food shortage in that country. 
Through greater local contact with 
the farmers, the new, plan is ex- 
pected to succeed where the old 
plan of merely fixing bottom prices 
for these products — not -very good 
prices at that — failed. An increase 
in hog, bean, and tomato produc- 
tion also is desired.

Ex-President Herbert Hoover and 
Senator Wheeler, of Montana, are 
both very much worried over the 
advent of Russia into the war. Mr. 
Hoover told us in a radio speech 
the other day that it made our 
■participation in the struggle a 
"gargantuan jest," and added that 
when we made our promise to aid 
Russie "the ideological war to bring 
the four freedoms to the world died 

Both the Senator and ex-Presi- 
dent have been describing eloquent-' 
ly the brutality of the Stalin re- 
gime; the treachery of the Soviets, 
the intolerance and fifth-column 
maneuvers of the Communists — 
with the implication that we are 
conniving with all these manifesta- 
tions of tyranny, when we indicate 

is now a Hoovercrat? 

Incidentally, Senator Wheeler 
who is now. so fierce in his denun- 
ciation of Bolshevism as being at 
least as menacing as Nazism, was 
not always thus. In 1930, afted a 
long Russian tour, he wrote a ser- 
ies of art iciest-later reprinted in 
the Congressional Record — in which 
he reached this conclusion: "Russia 
for thirteen years has maintained a 
stable government — much more 
stable than have most of the South 
American and Latin American 
countries. They have maintained 
order within their borders. * • • * 
They have met promptly the obli- 
gations incurred by them since they 
came into power. 

"By all the rules of international 
law and practice they are entitled 
to recognition." 

Of course, the issue is not that 

Senator Wheeler's consistency, or • 

ex-President Hoover's vacillation.

Some of our good people are wondering why the 
state doesn't enforce its highway rules or regula- 
tions In Red Lake Palls as well as elsewhere. In 
our own town we must park parallel on all highway 
streets. If you don't It won't be long before the 
"cop" gets you. But at Red Lake Falls the cars are 

parked on the state highway in the good old fash- 
brought down to reasonable 'levels. If both of these, ion way. Why this difference? 

There is an old Sanskrit collec- 
tion of stories held togther by the 
framework of a king tormented by 
a demon, who each night tells him 
a story ending in a riddle, and 
who will continue to haunt him 
until the king solves one of the 
puzzles. One of these stories is of 
two men who were beheaded and 
miraculously restored to life, but 
with their heads accidentally ex- 
changed, so that now the head of 
one is fitted to the body of the 
other. One of the men was married 
and the demon's question is this: 
To whom does the wife now be- 
long, to her husband's bedy or to 
his head? The original anecdote is 
thin and dry (indeed, having to 
listen to the demon's narrative 
must have been no small part of 
the king's torments) ; but on this 
unpromising beginning Thomas 
Mann has worked a transformation 
like that of Shakespeare on some 
dull story out of Bandelle, putting 
into it human drama, metaphysical 
philosophy, and yet — constantly 
darting across the fabric — a strain 
of fantastic humor that seems to 
make fun of Itself. He has, to begin 
with, a complete and comprehen- 
sible triangle of emotions, involving 
Shridaman, the Brahmin student, 
and Nanda, the handsome young 
smith, who are devoted friends, 
each recognizing in the other the 
qualities that he lacks, while Sita, 
married to Shridaman and loving 
him, is, nevertheless, inescapably 
troubled by the athletic good looks 
of Nanda. It Is human dilemma; 
though when it leads to a double, 
ceremonial suicide (a sacrificial 
rite, comparable to hari-klrl), it is 
viewed with a grave irony, at first 
almost too o.ulet to show itself, 
which grows broader with the en- 
trance of the goddess, Kail, to put 
matters right. The tone changes 
again when the corpses have been 
brought back to life, with their 
heads transposed, and when, after 
a dispute between them for Sita,

gen, small-time Nazi agent, serving 
as a warning against other Nazi 
dupes in the academic .world

The Government is particularly 
anxious to try Transocean in order 
to expose, especially for the bene-

George A. McNulty, and his aide,

While Transocean has "closed 
shop" in this country, it is still 
going full blast in Mexico and all

ment investigators are satisfied that 
this alleged news service not only 
is continuing its policy of foster- 
ing anti-American feelings in all 
lands south of the Rio Grande, but 
that it carries on large scale es- 
pionage activities as well. In the

ried the word that we were permit- 
ting Russia to buy arms and muni- 
tions here carried the story of the 
conviction ' in our courts of various 
Communists of violating our anti- 
espionage laws. 

The Senator and the ex-Presi- 
dent are nearly together in their 
isolationism, though Mr. Hoover in 
his recent talk veered pretty far 
when he announced his position on 
aid to Britain, and said: "To pre- 
vent these supplies from being sunk 
I proposed we hand over to Great 
Britain the same convoy warships 
;ve would use if we joined the war." 
Yet a short time ago Mr. Hoover 
showed anything *but enthusiasm 
about our turning 45 over-age de- 
stroyers over to England, in ex- 
change for naval bases on her 
Western possessions. 
Is The Senator Now A Hoovercrat 

However, the Senator and the ex- 
President are grouped together in 
their general attitude as to the 
war situation. 

Come to think of it, these two 
have been on opposite sides for ten 
years and there have been some 
pretty sharp exchanges between 
them" over this period. The Con- 
gressional Record shows the Mon- 
tana inserting in the Record vari- 
ous statements indicating the low 
esteem in which he held the then 
Chief Executive, from 1928 to 1932. 
Both are now conveying the 
thought that our aid to Russia 
taints this administration with 
symoathy for, if not conversion, to 
the Red ideology. Would it be safe 
to aoolv the same sort of logic, and 
figure from it that Senator Wheeler 

Axis powers. 
It Depends On How You Measure 

Mr. Hoover scoffs at the Japan- 
ese peril — stating that Japan is 
6,000 miles away from continental 
United States. Well, Alaska is. part 
of the United States and Tokio is 
not much farther from Alaska than 
is San Francisco. If Russia is con- 
quered by the Hitler legions, the 
Pacific shores of Siberia might be- 
come either Hitler outposts, or be 
taken over by Japan, whose itch for 
conquests in that direction perhaps 
exceeds her desire to spread out to 
the Dutch East Indies, and the rest 
of Oceania. 

As Walter Lippman phrased the 
situation recently : "The question 
posed by the Russian War is whe- 
ther ports and airfields of Eastern 
Siberia are to remain ir. independ- 
ent Russian hands, or are to be 
seized by Japan, or are to be con- 
trolled by some sort of puppet gov- 
ernment under Nazi, or Japanese, 
or Nazi-Japanese control." 

That is how Mr. Hoovers 6.0C0- 
mile security belt shrinks in the 
light of present possibilities. Some 
of the Russian air bases are within 
a hundred miles of our Alaskan 
stations. Actually, the .easternmost 
point of Russian possession and the 
westernmost outpost of the United 
States are not much farther apart 
than Baltimore ana Washington. 

Perhaps ic view of the potential- 
ities of the Russo-German War. the 
importance of material aid to . the 
Soviet outfit mav be appreciated. 
It amounts to a great deal more 
than our distaste for Bolshevism or 
Bolshevic habits, customs or exces- 
ses — which have no more to do with 
what the defense of America de- 
mands, than Joe Stalin's pipe or

Book Review 

(Continued from r«*o two) 

a holy man pronounces that she 
bolongs to Shridaman's head. Now 
it becomes a set of subtle varia- 
tions on themes or the vanity of 
human wishes, and of Si jeunesse 
savait, si viellesse pouvait! Sita now 
possesses the soul she loves and 
the body she desires; and Shrida- 
man, who has always envied his 
friend's muscles, now has them for 
his own; are they not perfectly 
happy? Not for long; but the ex-, 
quisite. muted analysis of the.un- 
happlness of granted wishes can- 
not be hinted in any fewer words 
than the economical number Tho- 
mas Mann has used for it. This 
is a recherche book, a soap-bubble 
so swollen and shimmering with 
pity and mockery, metaphysics and 
extra vanganza, that it just does not 
burst. ■

East Siders Win Junior 
Legion Sub-Dist. Title 

East Grand- Forks Hands Crookston 

9-0 Setback After Givinff Thief 

Biver A 6-3 Defeat 

East Grand Porks' American Le- 
gion junior baseball team reigned 
as champions' as a result of their 
9 to win over Crookston in the 
final game of the sub-district tour- 
nament held at the Fairgrounds 
last Saturday. , East Grand Porks 
entered the finals after having eked 
out a 6 to 3 win over Thief River 
Palls in the morning game. Crook- 
ston earned their chance at the 
championship by swamping- a weak 
"Warren team 14 to 2 in the after- 
noon game. 

Pre-tournament dope ran true to 
form as East Grand won the event 
with Crookston runner-up. Al- 
though a close game was expected, 
-the final contest turned out to be 
more a runaway. It wasn't a mat- 
ter of how many runs Crookston 
could score, but rather, how 
limit the East-siders. Neither team 
received credit for a lot of hits— 
6 for the winners and 2 for Crook- 
ston— but the whole thing rested 
in the hands of the pitchers. "Pea- 
ches" Peterson, hurling for East 
Grand, fanned 16 Crookston bat- 
ters, while Swanson and Laurent 
struck out only 4 of the winners. 
Peterson walked one while the two 
Crookston hurlers were walking 14. 
The morning game might well 
have been the championship game. 
The champs bested the Thief Ri- 
ver team. 6 to 3, but that's only half 
of the story. The game went two 
extra innings when the thing 
wound up at 3 each at the end of 
the seventh. East Grand got off to 
an early lead by scoring once In the 
first and again in the second. Thief 
River scored three runs in the fifth 
to take the lead. This they held 
until the seventh, when with two 
gone, the champs scored to tie 
t hing s up. It stayed even through 
the eighth, and again with two 
out in the ninth the winners took 
matters in their hands and scored 
three runs to complete the scor- 

It was a battle of pitchers for 
the most part with Lorentson chal- 
king up 13 strikeouts and issuing 
2 walks. Spitzer walked 2 Thief Ri- 
ver batters and fanned 11. The 
losers outhlt the championship 
team 12 to 11. 

Warren showed up for their af- 
ternoon game minus two players. 
The outfield was noticeably bare the Crookston team walloped 
. the Warrenites 14 to 2. It was a 
wild affair with five errors record- 
ed. Five bases on balls were issued, 
two batters were hit by the pitch- 
ers and five wild pitches were 
scored against the hurlers. 
. The box score: 
', E. Grand Forks (6) ab 

r-Martin. Double play— Sannes to 
Noah to Lund. Stolen bases— Laur- 
ent, Johnson, McGowan 2, Nustad. 
Bases on balls — off Swanson, 6; off 
Laurent, 8; off Peterson, 1. Struck 
out — by Swansom 3; by Laurent, 1; 
by Peterson, 16. "Wild pitches —

The mighty have fallen! Thief 
River Falls' baseball team's attempt 
to lengthen their string of conse- 
cutive victories to 7 was halted by 
a stubborn Warren team last Sun- 
day at Warren by a 5 to 4 score. 
But it took the Warrenites an ex- 
tra Inning to accomplish the trick. 
Everything was all-even at three 
runs apiece after the top half of 
the fifth Inning and it remained 
that way through the ninth, ne- 
cessitating further play. Thief Ri- 
ver took their turn at bat and 
scored once in the tenth. Warren 
scored two runs with two out in 
their half of the extra Inning and 
laid claim to victory. 

Warren took a 2-run lead in the 
first inning after the Thief River 
nine failed to score. The losing out- 
fit tied it' all up in the third, but 
Warren came back to score a run 
in the fourth and take the lead 
again. Thief River tied it all up in 
their half of the fifth, and it re- 
mained that way until the extra 

Jesse DuChamp, who was injured 
in the game, and Nornes topped the 
losing batsmen with two singles 
each. HaUamack clouted a double 
for Thief River. McGlynn,. with 
three singles, and Rosendahl, with 
two, led the winners in the hit ti ng 
department. H. Howard bagged a 

Warren came up with Harold 
.Stroble on the mound, replacing 
"Legs" Engelstad, and he turned 
the trick striking out 10 Thief Ri- 
ver batters, while allowing them. 9 
hits. The defeat was the first black 
mark against Bill HaUamack, who 
liad won six straight for the Thief 
River nine. He fanned six and al- 
lowed 11 hits. 

The box score:

Plummer Loses T hird 
Straight Game Sunday 

In an interesting ten-inning con- 
test on the plummer diamond Sun- 
day Plummer dropped its third 
straight game, this to the Grand 
Forks All Star team, when two in- 
field errors, a single and a double 
scored two runs for the visitors. 

Plummer plated 2 runs in the 
last of the first Inning, the All 
Stars coming back to piate one run 
In the second, following up by scor- 
ing three in the 5th. Coming from 
behind the Plummer boys drove 
over a run in both the 7th and 8th, 
making it 4-all. The 9th was score- 
less and the Plummer. boys went 
down in order in the 10th after 
Grand Forks had tallied twice. 

Plummer is offering the fans a 
double-header attraction on the 
Plummer grounds next Sunday 
when they will put on a matinee 
of several innings of inter-squad 
baseball by the Plummer Midgets 
preceeding the contest between 
Plummer and the All Stars of the 
Little Six league. The Midget game 
will start at 1:15 p.

-By Perd Elstad" 

Apologies are extended to the 
Red Lake Falls diamondballers for 
the erroneous report of their game 
with Brldgeman's ten in the last 
Issue of this paper. The score book 
read 9 to 8 in favor of the Lakers, 
but through same error it was pub- 
lished 9 to 8 the other way "round. 
So it stands this way that Red 
Lake Falls took the measure of the 
Bridgeman gang and not vice-ver- 
sa. ... As long as apologies are 
the order at present, it Is no more 
than right to say "I'm sorry" to 
the Bridgeman team. It was re- 
ported that they were in -the league 
cellar as a result of the reorgani- 
zation that . took place for the se- 
cond, round of the league. How- 
ever, they were NOT in that po- 
sition Land 0*Lakes gets in 

on this session too. They are run- 
ning neck and neck with Hartz' 
ten, and not on the tail of mat 
outfit. An unplayed game with CCC 
put Land 0"Lakes a notch below the 
top ten, but a forfeit- was awarded 
the Lake gang, so they ride the 
crest hand in hand with the Harts 

team There you are boys, 

now let's all be friends again.

the American Legion baseball tour- 
nament that warrant special at- 
tention. Smarting off with, the first 
game. Coach Ray Baker and Man- 
ager Gregg of the East Grand 
Forks outfit experienced several 
anxious moments. East Grand had 
beaten Thief River Falls twice dur- 
tag the season, so the management 
took this .game lightly. Rather-than 
use Peterson, their topr-notch, bur- 
ler, they called on Spitzer to op- 
pose the local nine. Well, the local 
nine that wasnt expected to do 
much held the lead through the 
fifth and sixth innings and until 
there were two outs in the last 
regular inning. Here East Grand 
turned on the heat' to tie it up 
and go. on to win. Yep, I still bet 
there were several anxious mo- 

010 030 000 2 — eUjnents The local Legion nine 

meed not apologize for anything 
that went on in their game against

East Grand Forks, but this can be 
brought up. Their record during 
the regular season was far from 
good. But they- seemed to find 
themselves against Grand Forks 
here a week ago Wednesday when 
the Forkers had a hard time eking 
out a 3 to 2 win. in that game 
Homer Matheson cracked a collar 
bone. The next night -at practice 
Bruce Biddick tore some ligaments 
around the ankle. That same day 
"Soup" Campbell saw the dentist. 
So here's the picture when the 
locals to* the field against East 
Grand Forks in the tournament 
Saturday. Biddick was on crutches: 
Matheson's arm was In a sling; and 
Campbell was missing four front 

teeth. Vern Tormoen, third 

baseman for the local team, is con- 
sidered de best baseball prospect 

for some time ien Lorentson 

pitched his' heart out to win the 
ball game, getting 13 strikeouts, but 
the decision went the other way. 
, . Warren brought up a pitcher, 
Mallinger, witb a , wind-up like a 
major leaguer. He took more time 
than it does for the ordinary man 
to run around the""bases. Perhaps 
all this was justifiable, though, as 
ttie Warren, team was short two 
men at the game's start and were 
stalling until they arrived. . . . 
Most active coach was Morin 
Miecke of Crookston, who never 
missed a play. Kept telling the boys 
what It was all about, ansj^lt did 
some good in the' afternoon, but 
failed to produce in the finals. . . 
Miecke has a little 13 year old fel- 
low by the name of Johnson tak- 
ing care of second base. This little 
fellow batted 533 during the tour- 
nament, and according to Miecke, 

does that right along. Top 

tiurler of the tournament was East 
Grand Forks* Peterson. If he isnt 
Northern League material for next 
year, no one Is. ... . From a crowd 
standpoint the tourney was not a 
success. However, there were 
enough people on hand backing 
each team to give them a little 

added zip Now a bouquet to 

Chuck Dostal, Charlie Herron, and 
Claude Trickle for the day's offi- 

-Playground Tournaments

One of the most important steps 
in getting high grade grain into 
the bin is a matter of observing 
good farm practices at harvest- 
threshing time, says W. W. Brook- 
ins, extension agronomist at Uni- 
versity Farm. Don't make the com- 
mon mistake of cutting before the 
srain has reached the- firm dough 
stage, unless- you are forced to do 
so in order to avoid hail and insect 
damage. Both 3'ield and quality 
suffer when grain is harvested too 
early. A simple rule to follow hi 
harvesting grains is to allow the 
seeds to become hardened to a 
point where the thumb nail fails 
to make a dent in the seed.

mer and that he deemed it wise

might get rested for the shows 
next week. He also extended an in- 
vitation for anyone desiring to see 
the animals to- visit the fair 
grounds this week. 

Sixty horses are included in the 
company's assortment of animals, 
in addition to buffaloes and an 
assortment of dogs. The perform'

"For the farmers who are in need 
of financing of adequate storage 
space and are eligible for it under 
this emergency supplemental loan 
program, we are going to recom- 
mend that thev construct a mova- 
ble 1.000 grain bin," he explained. 
"The material for this type of 
storage costs less than $100, and 
most of this expense can he met 
with the seven-cent per bushel ad- 
vance which the Commodity Cre- 
dit Corporation will make under the 
wheat-loan program for storage on 
the farm. Moreover, the structure 
can be easily converted into a poul- 
try brooder house or range shel- 
ter, a hog farrowing house, a feed 
house, or it can be used for seed 
grain storage." 

Detailed information concerning 
this movable grain bin is contained 
in a pamphlet entitled "Storing the 
1941 "wheat Crop" published last 
month bv the Agricultural Exten- 
sion Service of the University of 
Minnesota. The pamphlet is avail- 
able to farmers at county agricul- 
tural agents' offices.

Several new vacancies on the 

Crop returns in this area took a 
serious drop during the hot spell 
that ended Tuesday. The intense 
heat of last week was especially 
harmful to late small grain fields, 
causing the unfilled kernels to rip- 
en ahead of time. This was the 
opinion expressed today by Carl 
R. Anderson, chairman of thi Pen- 
nington county AAA. 

Not only did the heat shrivel the 
grain but rust has caused damage 
to the heavier fields of wheat es- 
pecially, with some loss to oats, bar- 
ley and flax as well. The com has ' 
benefitted from the hot weather 
but the soil is becoming dry so 
there may be a setback to this crop 
in this manner. 

The early crops are good and 
some areeas to the south have 
completed harvesting, with an in- 
dication of the best yield in years. 
This applies especially to regions 
40 to 50 miles south and west. 

The first returns brought to a 
local elevator for the 1941 wheat 
crop is that of the Martin Finstad 
farms southeast of town. A winter 
wheat field yielded 20 bushels to the 
acre of 60 lb. No. 1 Dark Northern.
